Strange redraw issues

Redraw failure of either emacs or xchat, which are overlaying each other
Description of problem:
When the KDE taskbar at the bottom of the screen pops up a transient window (tooltip?) giving more information on whatever the mouse is over, sometimes another piece of the screen gets redrawn, usually incorrectly. What I usually see is a tooltip-shaped piece of screen getting redrawn from the background image. It's as if the server has a record of an old tooltip that it decides needs erasing.
This happens with both the 'nv' and the 'nouveau' drivers, but doesn't seem to happen with NVidia's own driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It happens fairly regularly, but I'm not sure of a consistent way of causing it to happen.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move the mouse on to the KDE task bar, then off and on again. This may need repeating a few times.
When the mouse is moved onto the task bar, a tooltip will pop up with extra information. Sometimes the moment this happens, another area of the screen is corrupted by some sort of apparent partial redraw.
The rest of the screen shouldn't be altered.
I'm also seeing bug 478532 occasionally in konqueror and once in emacs which may be related.

X server log
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '10'.
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 10'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 10 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 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 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.
