Comment(by jnettlet):

 This is a problem with the way damage is being done in the X server.  The
 galcore driver has command queues which handle the command submission to
 the hardware.  Once an accelerated drawing operation is done the Xorg
 server calculates damage and reissues requests to get repainted.  However
 those redraw requests might be old, or not even relevant any longer.  I
 have worked around this by manually marking copy regions dirty to make
 sure that damage is tracked and repaired.

 I still need to profile this to make sure we are not doing something silly
 like falling through to unaccelerated paths.
