I have something that seems to be same on my
4.10-Stable with XFree86 4.4 , but it only happens
with xmgrace (graphics application) and nedit
(ascii text editor); these two applications have
in common that they both use OpenMotif.
Closing the application and restarting it, solves
the problem.

I blamed OpenMotif for doing funny things with
my Xserver, but I have never got any clue how
to investigate the problem, since it seems to
occur ad random.

Oh, I'm not using KDE, but have Xfce instead.

Regards,
Rob.
