Blackening of some screen areas
 
Hi!

I'm using XFCE4.8, and I seem to have a display problem when resizing the xfce4-terminal. Whenever I resize it, a large portion of my screen becomes black... This black area is always to the left of the terminal.

E.g., if I have the terminal in the upper right, grab its lower horizontal window frame and drag that down to the bottom of my screen, the left half of my screen goes black.

Also when I bring the terminal to the front after it having been covered behind other windows, or having been minimized, similar problems happen.

There are no error messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

I'm using:

I had the same issue with urxvt after updating to 270.41.06. Removing "URxvt.depth: 32" from my .Xdefaults stopped it for me, so I suggest looking for the equivalent setting for xfce4-terminal (till the issue is fixed).

Same happens with kde 4.6 when resizing kvirc window. Parts of the screen go black and don't repaint properly until I move a window over the affected areas.

Seems to be fixed in nvidia 275.09.07.
