Finally, I've found a solution that works for me: updating my
proprietary NVidia drivers to the latest beta release (180.06) .

For those interested, you can get them here:

While this behaviour was most noticeable Firefox for me, I had
encountered it in other X applications as well and suspected a driver
issue.  KDE 4.1 seems to be running smoothly for me now too.  Hopefully
this solves it for others as well.

I'm running a 64-bit kernel and my video card is a Quadro FX 570M.
