I'm using xterm on Gentoo Linux. After working with xterm for a while (typing many characters/commands), suddenly, xterm stops painting (rendering text). The caret seems to be frozen. The text is rendered correctly only after I shift focus to some other window and back to xterm (or move the xterm window).
All other applications (except kvm-qemu - vncviewer and flash), which are giving me similar problems, work just fine. I have tried recompiling the kernel with various frame-buffer/video driver options - but no go. Also tried re-emerging xterm with USE="X". I am gonna try and re-emerge video drivers today...
Has anybody encountered this problem? Any clues?
