Thanks for the info.  With these hints, I could reproduce the problem
on CentOS 5.9, where no compositing manager seems to be used by
default and expose events are issued when a window is being uncovered.

1. Execute "emacs -Q -D &" from the terminal window.
2. Evaluate the following expression in the *scratch* buffer:

      (sleep-for 5)
      (let ((cursor-in-echo-area t))
        (message "foo")
        (sit-for 0))
      (sleep-for 30))

3. Switch focus to the terminal window and wait 5 seconds for the
   message "foo" followed by the cursor to be displayed in the echo
4. Move the terminal window so it goes across the echo area.

Then the cursor in the echo area disappears.  If I try the same
experiment on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, which has a compositing manager, then
the cursor does not disappear.
