Is the screen corruption only happening for LibreOffice or are there
other applications affected?

I think you are putting too much spicy on the soup :-)
I would try to disable compiz and see what happens. It could be "cairo-
dock" or "compiz" (or a mix of a lot of other things, the soup has many
ingredients...) the ones making the screen goes corrupted. If disabling
compiz fixes the problem (the same as happens with GNOME) I would contact
compiz at their forums or mailing lists.
