For what it is worth, I don't seem to be able to produce this
with any DVI files I create.  If you have one in particular you
would like me to verify, you can email it to me.

What version of xdvi are you running?  I have a recent port:

     $ xdvi -version
 	xdvik version 22.84.10 (@(#)Motif Version 2.2.3, runtime version 2.2)
 	Libraries: kpathsea version 3.5.2, T1lib version 5.1.2
