This sounds like a bug specific to your system... I even switched into
the lowest resolution mode on my system "640x480" and could not
reproduce this bug.

This appears to probably be video card dependent. I have a Radeon 9200
which is a current low end card (~ $50 USD). I can see very little
tearing even when moving windows around as fast as possible. Even that
is pretty hard to see since my eyes usually don't focus fast enough to
see the tearing.

X applications that do not work over a network sound like that aren't
written correctly. Do you happen to know of any? Also a 10kbit network
connection isn't all that much really. Any modern modem should be able
to do that.
