Comment 3 for bug 1002972

>> I can produce the problem by starting an xterm and clicking (or double clicking) the title bar. It moves one pixle to the upper left.
>> Same xclock, and xfontsel, but not xfig, xpdf or any software built on gnome.
>> Since I use a touchpad with separate mouse bottons, we can't blame a tremor for that.
>> New since my recent upgrade to natty.

I think I am using compiz as my window manager (wobbly windows and
stuff). When doing "metacity --replace" xterm does not move anymore
when clicking the titel bar.

This should not be a problem with xterm, because the same happens with
other legacy X11-programs (xclock, xfontconfig). The simplest piece
of software exhibiting the problem is xmessage. The issue must be
with the interaction between one of the libraries xmessage binds and

$ ldd /usr/bin/xmessage | sort

Hope this helps.
