 When I update Trac tickets then do Preview, I sometimes see garbage in the
 resulting Preview box, mixed in with what I expect to see.  Looks like
 colored snow, or diagonal TV interference, or corrupted display memory.
 See Screenshots.  It is a static unchanging image, until I do input.
 Sometimes just hitting Alt-1 (for Screenshot) will change the interference
 pattern slightly, or fix it.

 Probably this is happening inside my XO (Browse-95 and joyride-2301), but
 maybe it comes from the Trac server?  If so, it should show on a non-XO

 I have noticed this problem on a significant fraction of my Trac Previews.
 And only when I do Preview. Rarely, the interference extends outside the
 Preview box.  When I scroll the screen, the interference scrolls in sync
 with everything else, off the screen and then back onto the screen if I
 reverse scroll.

 I suggest that other people please Preview their Trac ticket updates on
 their XO's using Browse-95 in joyride-2301.

 I have not previously participated in Trac using earlier XO software, so
 don't know if this bug is new or old.

 Idea:  perhaps this bug is related to the "DRAFT" background watermark
 seen in the Preview text box?
