 In os5 you can see a flickering in Browse/epiphany when scrolling. You can
 espacially see this affect when having bigger pictures in the page to

 Both Browse and Epiphany are using webkitgtk. Jon tracked the flickering
 down to gtk3 version 3.3.18-1. Installing gtk3 3.3.16-1  with yum
 downgrade gtk3-3.3.16-1.fc17.i686 will get a
 non-flickering browse experience.  This does break epiphany. It is a good
 jumping off point for debugging what commit caused the breakage.

 Seen on the XO 1.75 and the 1.5.

 Putting into x-window-system for now, but the issue might be as well in
 another layer.
