Description Gennaro 2008-04-04 12:38:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008033120 Fedora/3.0-0.51.beta5rc2.fc9 Firefox/3.0b5

Description of problem:
This may be a problem more general than xfontsel! 
I suppose some graphic library fault but i cannot guess which one.

Boxes and windows border lines are drown with an x and y offset when you keep xfontsel out the screen and then keep it back. More often this boxed are drown piecewise with different offsets.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run xfontsel from tcsh
2.use the mouse to bring it out the screen on the left side
3.bring it back completely in the screen

Actual Results:
Black and white borders for keys "quit" "select" are drown with about 50 pixel on right and 10 pixel on bottom of the right place.
Also there is some tiny (1 pixel wide, 10 .. 100 pixel high) vertical white and black segment appearing here and there on the window.

You could clean them passing another windows on the xfontsel window.

Expected Results:

Additional info:
I installed fedora8 10 days ago, and i upgraded it a lot, passing to rawhide.

PLEASE check this, since it seems not a problem of xfontsel but seems coming from some graphic library.

But at the moment i did NOT observed it with xterm emacs firefox.
