mouse cursor corrupts screen under hardware opengl applications

Description of problem:
Under RH9, the mouse cursor leaves behind a kind of delayed-redraw corruption
rectangle inside hardware rendered opengl applications.
Instead of tranperantly displaying the actual GL window under the cursor, it's
as if the previous under-the-cursor image is being draw - albeit too late. This
causes a bunch of mess to form around the cursor.
Please see the screen shot provided.
- Matrox G400 32mb
- NVidia TNT 16mb
- custom/interal GL apps
- blender3d.org's Blender
- many small GL applications
No such corruption occurs if I force the application to use software GL (ie. set
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use libraries from a freshly compiled MesaLib build). This
seems to point to something hardware related.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run any opengl based, in particular, those that run inside of a window
2. move cursor around the app redraws and renders its window
Actual Results: Corruption.
Expected Results: No corruption.
Xcursor thing, perhaps?
Same problem with i830 on IBMs R31
Option "SWCursor" "true" in XF86Config (Section Device)
