User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.14) Gecko/20110221 SUSE/3.1.8 Thunderbird/3.1.8

I have switched off compositing and the problem appears to go away.

The machine is not identical to the one that does not have the problem in that
though both are 64bit the problem box is a Thinkpad T61 (7959-CT0) which has:

Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller

So the question is: Is this a bug in the graphics driver or SuSE's packaging of
the driver compositing software.
