Given that it occurs only under remote desktop, and not under VNC, I'm guessing this may be gfx-related. I believe there have been substantial changes in the graphics system recently -- moving away from use of xrender, etc -- so I wonder if that's what has caused the problem here. Tentatively moving this bug to Core::Gfx, to bring to the notice of people who may know something.
