Subjectmoving a window makes the system 'hang' until button is released
[1.] One line summary of the problem:    
Dragging a window in X makes the system "hang" until button is released.

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:
"Hang" means xmms's sound output stops, and if I'm running something
like "while :; do echo hi; sleep 1; done" in a different window, that
also stops writing "hi" until I release the mouse button. (Then I
get a whole bunch of them all at once.) This seems to rule out ALSA
being the cause, which was originally my first thought.

I've tried with and without CONFIG_PREEMPT enabled. I've tried changing
X to be un-niced. I've tried applying the patch-test4-O20int patch from
Con Kolivas. That last patch seems to have increased the time it takes
for the problem to kick in (it's on the order of 5 seconds now instead
of 3 seconds), but it didn't fix it.

However: if I make the problem occur once, then wait just a few
seconds, then do it again, it happens much more quickly (sound stops
within one second). The longer I wait before dragging a window around,
the longer it will take for the problem to occur.

The window manager is fvwm. It's XFree86 4.2.1.1 on a Debian unstable
system. I'm not using "opaque" window dragging -- just the outlines
of the windows. The problem is not related to CPU overworking, because
I've got dnetc and Freenet running in the background, and they don't
cause any glitches like this. The problem also occurs if I am *not*
running them.

The problem occurs with both moving and resizing a window.

I did *not* observe this problem under Linux 2.4.21.
