I noticed that on my computer too a few months back. I had the same
problem with Audacity and Kicad (both wxwidgets apps).

For what I understand, this has been tracked down to a bug in the Intel
driver in conjunction with a Xorg bug when using unaccelerated graphics.
But I may be wrong.

So first, double check you are using hardware acceleration. I thought I
was and I wasn't for months :).
