Using 'NoAccel' in xorg.conf seems to hide the symptoms of the bug, or
remove the bug.
However, without that option, with this patch, the problem seems "less
bad", if that's even possible. It takes longer for the root window to
get "ridiculously speckled." Not sure if that info helps at all. :-)
Not sure if I mentioned that, the first patch (the one sent a couple
weeks ago) did not seem to have this problem.
