Description of problem:
When dragging windows between workspaces with my G450 (just used with a single
head) with wireframe outlines, the wireframe bit stays drawn on the new
This is with a fully up2date 7.2 release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure you are using "box" outlines when moving Windows: found in GNOME
control centre->Sawfish->Moving and Resizing->How windows being moved are
2. Ensure you have multiple workspaces:
GNOME control centre->Sawfish->Workspaces
and under the Edge Flipping tag, ensure "Select the next desktop when the
pointer hits screen edge" is enabled, hitting the screen edge selects the next
3. Make sure you have a bunch of windows up, on both workspaces (going from and
to) and drag one of the windows to the other one.
It can be done with multiple viewports, not workspaces, but for some reason it
is less reliable, and only seems to cause the "box" to be left behind a little,
and only on the window being moved.
Actual Results: The wireframe "box" is left partially drawn, even on existing
Expected Results: No box :).
I've noticed a made a fundamental mistake in my description. Everywhere I
mention workspaces, I mean viewports and vice versa!
Please attach your XFree86 log file, and config file using the link below.
I've got some potential troubleshooting tests we can try in order to find
a workaround for now, and also track down the source of the problem for

Attached config file and log as requested. Obviously just say if there's
anything else I can do to help.
Sorry for not getting back to you on this, it somehow slipped between
the cracks. ;o/
If this problem is still occuring for you, could you indicate if you've
tried RHL 7.3 or 8.0 yet or not and if the problem is present in either
release or not? Also, I've got a new RHL 8.0 erratum candidate for testing
at ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris/testing/8.0/XFree86 which has some
Matrox fixes in it also for screen corruption issues.
If these problems persist, we can try disabling acceleration, DRI and
other things to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Have you tried my latest packages with the updated mga driver?
Closing bug as CURRENTRELEASE and assuming that the problem no longer occurs
