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.

Well, a compositing manager is not card-specific... (can end up running some proportion of different code on different cards, though e.g. depending on shader capability level). Looking through the intel driver bugzilla [1], there are various "odd display artifact" type bugs. If you wouldn't mind reporting the bug to them [2], they might be able to diagnose.
