I'd assumed it was Mir/XMir related somewhere along the way simply because I 
wasn't getting the same extreme behaviour if I disabled unity-system-compositor 
and went back to pure X.

But whatever the cause, updates in the last 24 hours seem to have greatly 
reduced or maybe even eliminated the problem.  Which is nice. :-)
