There have been some similar bugs fixed in the xorg-x11-6.8.2
release, which will be part of the RHEL4 U1 update. We will
be making some test packages available soon which you can try
in order to see if the new release resolves this issue.
I will add a new comment and URL to the rpms when they're ready
