Try recompiling the XDRIVER with the little change I just made.  I
turned of backingstore in X and it seems to repaint the screen correctly
now.  Before, it was checking if the server responded to
DoesBackingStore() with 'Always'.  However, it could also respond with a
'WhenMapped' which also means it does backingstore, but only if the
window is mapped.  I changed it to check against 'NotUseful', which
means backingstore is off in the server by default.  Hope it works...
