This was fixed by r6426.

This first appeared with Qt 4.2. For qgis 0.8, it happens only when 
launching from the command line and will correct itself when a layer is 
added. For qgis 0.9, it happens both when double-clicking and launching 
from the command line; it does not correct itself.

The problem has something to do with the relationship of the overview 
canvas to something else; it may be the panning rectangle but I'm not 
sure. If you set the parent of QgsMapOverviewCanvas to 'this' in 
QgisApp::createOverview, the problem goes away. This is incorrect 
however and may cause some other problem in the future.
