Description of problem:
Sometimes when I unhide my tvtime window which was partially hidden
under another window, the unhidden part of the tvtime window stays
black (isnt refreshed).
I can move a small window all over the tvtime so that tvtime is
This doesnt happen when the window is fully refreshed, like when I
switch workspace or when a window that was *fully* hiding the tvtime
window is minimized..
I really think this is an xorg-x11 problem. This wasnt happening on
FC1 with the quite same tvtime package (rebuilt from rawhide). And
I've never encounter this problem so far with any other Xv application
with old XFree86 releases.
