Hey there,
I have this problem as well.
They however do not seem to disapper when moving the terminals. I hadn't
tried it without transparency. I have been trying to install rhythmbox the
past 24 hours( without succes) and still trying. In my attempt I have
reinstalled all the ports it depends on, and for now it seems I don't not
have these "artifacts" as you call them in my terminal anymore. So my guess
would be that it's some kind of dependency that causes this. FOr tose bold
enough to try it. Try portupgrade -Rf and see if it works. BTW, this might
take a while.
