that part does sound like a refresh problem which may be in the X server,
except that greg is using a matrox card, and the x server for those is as
good as they come. i just tried wmaker 0.62.1 with CVS gimp and had no
problems. the selection border is drawn as negative, but that looks more
like its supposed to be that way.

maybe you should both try xfree 4. be warned its kinda glitchy too, only a
little more stable than NT4-sp6
