This is similar to a problem that I've noted with KDE 3.3.0, SuSE 9.2, and
nVidia drivers. The strange behaviour began after applying the update for
the Xorg X11 Server 6.8.1-15.6. My system with Matrox graphic adapters
doesn't have any problems.
I haven't had any responses to my last query. Hopefully, you will fare
