As I recall (it's been a long time), my KeyMusician Keyboard (Java 
application) also had similar problems on just that machine.

It might be an artifact of the way Java does graphics, since I think 
LibreOffice (or at least common portions of it) use Java.

Those problems do not occur on 12.04 - only on more recent system levels 
(with that old graphics card).
