I tracked this down to the xgl server and my fglrx.
I don't know if it occurs on non-fglrx systems or on all fglrx systems.
A temporary fix until Ubuntu corrects this problem (PLEASE!!) is to:
(as root, however you get there ...)
mv ??xserver-xgl_start-server SAVE
then log out and log back in, which, I believe, restarts your xserver. I ususally
ctl-alt-f1 and login as root on that that terminal
(I've given root a password so I can log in as root), and
The clue was noting gutsy had set DISPLAY to :1.0 which was the flag
that the xservers were layered (? not certain I'm saying this right). And that
I needed to STOP the layering.
FWIW ... in another month or two rumors are that AMD/ATI will finally have
fglrx able to handle the eye candy w/o the layered xserver kludge.
