It's definitely possible; I vaguely remember taking an Xorg update around that time on the x server side, so I'd be surprised if they were unrelated.I'm pretty confident that this problem is localized to emacs, though; emacs is the only application with which I experience the issue.Some more possibly useful data:The issue does not occur with emacsclient using the XQuartz server on my OSX box, connected to the same daemon.Xorg version (now) on my Ubuntu box:aptitude show xserver-xorgPackage: xserver-xorgState: installedAutomatically installed: noVersion: 1:7.6+12ubuntu2Priority: optionalSection: x11Maintainer: Ubuntu X-SWAT <address@hidden>Architecture: amd64Uncompressed Size: 369 kDepends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 2:1.11), xserver-xorg-video-all (>= 0~) | xorg-driver-video, xserver-xorg-input-all (>= 0~) | xorg-driver-input, xserver-xorg-input-evdev (>= 0~), libc6 (>= 2.7),xkb-data (>= 1.4), x11-xkb-utilsRecommends: libgl1-mesa-driConflicts: xorg-renamed-package, xserver-xorg-renamedReplaces: xorg-renamed-package, xserver-xorg-renamedProvides: xserver, xserver-xorg-renamedProvided by: xserver-xorg-lts-quantalDescription: X.Org X serverI will try today to find time to roll back to 24.2 and see if it occurs there. I'll try 24.1 as well, if time permits.On Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 1:38 AM, Eli Zaretskii <address@hidden> wrote:

(hardware or software) that happened around the time you started
I mean, 24.2 was released last August; if it had such a glaring bug in
the display code on a popular platform such as yours, we should have
heard of it by now. But I don't think any such problems were reported
One other thing to try is an unoptimized build (CFLAGS='-g3 -O0'),
maybe it's a compiler issue (which version are you using, btw?).
Not to be taken literally, internally, or seriously.
