I have noticed display corruption with many KDE applications; including kontact and konqueror. This
corruption is shared with the virtualbox-ose-qt GUI, so I believe either QT or X is the common factor,
Although I run mostly KDE applications, I also run iceweasel and have (so far) not noticed any
corruption with that application. Therefore I believe the problem lies within QT (and outwith X),
although I wouldn't say this is conclusive. I've also noticed the problem on three different machines,
each with different graphics hardware; suggesting this isn't directly a hardware-related problem.
The display corruption does not appear straight away. It appears to be triggered by something within
the application. I haven't been able to figure out precisely what triggers the problem, but it does
not appear to be directly related to user input (mouse movement, keyboard, etc) but rather the
application (attempting to) update its display in some way.
The display corruption is manifest as a rectangular region within a window with semi-random content.
The corruption sometimes shows content from other or previous windows, albeit distorted or misaligned:
successive horizontal lines appear shifted. The affected region is usually located at the top-left
corner of the window (including the menus), but does not include the window decoration.
Hiding the corrupted region (with another window) and revealing it again does not affect the corruption
but triggering the application (or QT) to refresh the display cleans the redrawn area; for example, a
mouse-hover over a toolbar or menu item will clear the corrupt as the application/QT will draw a
highlighted version of the icon or menu item.
Minimising and maximising the window will clear some corruption in the menu and toolbars, but not
elsewhere. This behaviour (min-then-max clearing corruption) appears to be application specific, so I
suspect it is another example of the application redrawing some content, causing that part of the
corruption to go away.
