This is generally a problem with the X driver or the kernel.
There have been many fixes in X since this was reported. Can you
please let me know if you still encounter this in Red Hat Linux 8.0,
and if so, please attach your X server log and config file.
Bug #73827 is related. Not sure if it is a dupe or not, so I'm setting it
as a block.
Please indicate if this is a problem still or not. And attach your X server
log and config file. I need this information in order to know what hardware

Closing bug due to lack of response/feedback and lack of information.
If problem persists, feel free to reopen and supply updated information
