I found bug 18668 in the bugs.freedesktop.org bugzilla that might be
related to this.  http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18668

There’s an interesting workaround in comment #9
(http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18668#c9) that can be
used to both cause the bug *and* work around it:

    alt-tab to a window (firefox is the one i usually use)
    alt-space to bring up the window options menu (metacity)
    select move (this binds the cursor to the center of the window)
    use the arrow keys to move the window to another X session window
    move the mouse
    the bug should now be gone

(You can cause the bug by selecting move, then moving across a
xinerama boundary.)
