Just curious and to make things clearer: are both of you (Richard and
Christos) also using NVidia proprietary driver ?
FYI: I'm using the nouveau driver - desktop effects (XRENDER) enabled - and
haven't seen any of the mentioned issues. Can it be that it's the proprietary
driver which is making trouble? If so, ask on the NVIDIA mailing list  if
others have the same issues.
Btw. Have you tried the vesa driver. It gives you a rather bad experience
(:-)) but at least you can test desktop effects (also XRENDER).

I don't know... we can try a new thread. This thread seemed to get a bit
side- tracked earlier.
I am not sure how / what bug report to file this againsts yet, as I don't
have a reliable way to reproduce, and my evidences are mainly anectdotal
(hence i wonder if anyone else experience it). But if you do file it please
let us know and we can contribute reports.
I haven't had a chance to try the workaround. For some reason my system
seems to be doing okay since I came in earlier today. I'll try the turning
off -- turning on desktop effect when it gets worse.
