Strange KDE4 behavior after updating to -current

I'm having problems with kde4. This is a bit hard to describe, but something 
is blocking input. When I type anything into a webpage, shell, or email 
nothing shows up on the screen until I move the mouse. In the case of a shell 
any command typed neither displays or executes till there is mouse movement.

I have rebuilt all the ports and kde4 (several times) but still the same. In 
console everything is fine as it is in xterm. This is a real hair puller and I 
don't have a clue what to check next.

pinnacle# uname -a
FreeBSD 9.0-BETA1 FreeBSD 9.0-BETA1 #2: Sun Aug  7

Ports tree is up to date and so is kde4. Any help would be appreciated as this 
is almost unusable as it is.
