Suddenly blinks out.  Then if I'm in X and I move the mouse then everywhere 
the mouse moves gets drawn (the usual redraw under cursor thing).  Then if I 
select a window the title-bar gets re-drawn etc.  I can drag a window around 
the screen to get it all displaying again, or I can switch VTs and back again.
