I don't notice this on machines that don't use the radeon driver so I suspect
there may be an issue there. I'm using stock F8 with metacity. I *often* see
issues with gnome-terminal like the screenshot I'm going to attach.
# lspci | grep ATI
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200] (rev 01)
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200] (Secondary)
Often, I'll get weird artifacts of things that either used to be on my screen or
are in other windows that are open but not in view.

Actually, this might be problem of gnome-terminal (is that what you use as your
xterm emulator)? Reassigning to gnome-terminal folks for further investigation.
However, still, could you please attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log and
/etc/X11/xorg.conf (just in case) as two separate uncompressed attachments?
Yes, I use gnome-terminal (see comment #1 ;). I'll attach the two requested files.

I talked to Behdad and it's not a gnome-terminal issue in his opinion. I can
only duplicate this on radeon hardware.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
