Description of problem:
Desktop window contents scroll/flicker up and down all by itself when
the mouse pointer is in the window.  Also cannot move window on
desktop by clicking and dragging on title bar.  Intermittent problem
that seems to have gone away when I opened a new tab in mozilla.


Strange behavior, have now seen this twice.  I had mozilla running
with two tabbed windows and also a gnome terminal running.   

I clicked in the terminal window and the text in that window began to
scroll up and down all by itself rapidly.  This continued as long as
the mouse pointer was in the window.  Moving the mouse pointer from
the terminal window to the mozilla window caused the window content
scrolling/flicker problem to follow the mouse to the mozilla window.  

I opened another gnome terminal window and it did not flicker because
there was not enough content on the screen to scroll up and down.

The desktop windows could be minimized and restored and the problem

Problem went away when I added another tab to the mozilla window so I
could access bugzilla.  Now I can move the windows and the crazy
window content scrolling has stopped.

while installing initscripts.
The window content scrolling problem follows the mouse.
The window content scrolling problem only happens with windows that
have more than one screen of content (windows that can be scrolled
Computer was running fine, problem occurred, then problem went away,
did not have to kill applications, logout or reboot.
While problem was occurring I was unable to move windows around on the
computer screen.

Fedora Core 1 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
