I have no idea if this is actually a bug or not.

Description of problem:
In KDE, GNOME, and the failsafe WM, there seems to be a problem around
redrawing windows.  I have posted two screenshots of the issue, and it
applies to every program that I have run, including the menu.  Any
time a redraw is not 'forced', by minimising and then maximising a
window, the window will only show minimal changes; for instance,
typing shows up, but often large areas that are supposed to be white
will not redraw even when the window is opened.  If I have evolution
open, after the screensaver turns off, most of the window still shows
the screensaver.  I just upgraded to FC3 from FC2 using apt-get and yum.
