Same problem here on a desktop with IGP (Radeon HD 4200).
I don't remember when it appears but it's recent.

I just noticed that it only occurs on QT based applications, i.e. the "pixel 
garbage" appears on right-click with KDE apps and VLC but not with Iceweasel.

System: Debian wheezy 32bits, KDE, no compositing, all effects disabled, only 
xserver-xorg-video-radeon installed.

I ran a LiveCD recently (for other purposes) without noticing any bug wathever 
the DE was (Gnome, KDE, LXDE, XFCE) but the LiveCD is not Debian based 
(Hybryde NirvanOS).
