I see this issue while playing videos in vlc, it's not 100% but close,
so it may be related to video resolution or codec. As soon as I stop the
video (not pause but stop) the windows draw properly again.

If your not running vlc at the time could the vlc plugin be running for
media on a web page?

I have seen this with chrome and a few other apps. Been a while since I
started a video while a page was open, but starting chrome while a video
is playing leaves only a blank window (the toolbar/bookmarksbar draw but
the rest of the window is blank) - the page is loaded but not drawn, I
get tooltips and cursor changes as I hover over where links etc should
be on the web page.

chrome clipgrab(qt) and even vlc(qt) are the ones I can think of now
- vlc shows this issue with it's extra windows - eg playlist, preferences.

I'm running 9.1 amd64 with nvidia-driver-310.44_1 xorg-7.7 xfce-4.10_5
