Default Blackening of some screen areas


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:
