I must admit that I have seen this behaviour before with other kernels but
a while back I changed from fvwm to KDE (don't anyone start a thread on
this please) and the problems seemed to go away. Then my hard drive
crashed and I re-installed and I'm back to fvwm (if anyone has compiled
KDE 1.0 for RH 5.1 drop me a note please) and whammo problems once again.

I must admit that I remember the original problems being less frequent and
not worth bothering about.

I suppose a good question at this point (since there seems to be little
else in common) is do you use fvwm too? FVWM can certainly scroll in a
similar fashion to the effects I am seeing (from my .fvwmrc):

# press arrow + meta key, and scroll by 1/10 of a page
Key Left A M Scroll -10 +0
Key Right A M Scroll +10 +0
Key Up A M Scroll +0 -10
Key Down A M Scroll +0 +10

This isn't quite the same effect but it's close. If it is a fvwm thing
then the question is what is triggering it?

Ideas, comments?
