Bug Description

I'm running "Classic" Natty amd64 on a Dell XPS L502x laptop, using only the intel graphics.

Very often (>50% of the time) when I switch workspaces to one with a gnome terminal open on it (gnome-terminal 2.32.1-0ubuntu3), the application area of the terminal is not repainted. The desktop background, terminal window decorations and menu bar and cursor are painted, but the rest of the window is left displaying whatever was on the screen on the previous workspace. Typing in the window clears the stale display and shows the typed text only where the new text is shown. Scrolling the terminal (e.g. hitting return in a full window) correctly renders the complete window.

Less often this also happens when switching to the terminal window with alt-tab, with some or all elements of the window that was on top being left in the gnome terminal application area.
