Comment(by Quozl):

 On one unit in my test bed for this ticket, with runin-gtk running under
 attached gdb, the runin-gtk window has unexpectedly resized overnight.  I
 don't know the details, because the dimensions are in the running program,
 but it is consistent with:
  * a width increase factor of 1.2,
  * a height increase factor of 3.2.
 Visible on the lower half of the screen is:
  * the title ''olpc-runin-tests 0.20.4 kernel 500dfc5 build 17'' consuming
 50% of the vertical space, offset to the right of centre of screen, text
 centre roughly corresponding to the right edge of the hinge,
  * the progress bar, consuming the remaining 50% of the vertical space,
 with the right-hand bevel missing (presumed off-screen).

 To me this suggests data corruption of values in memory, yet none of the
 testing so far has identified memory corruption in general.  So perhaps
 corruption of values essential to the sanity of the X server?
