No, I don't use it. And the bug is reproducible in both XFree86 and
X.org. I've seen it on at least four different machines with different
installations and settings. In fact, I have yet to see an Xfce 4.2
installation that doesn't expose this problem with GKrellM.

My way of coping with it is to change the dimension of the GKrellM
window by incrementing the size of one of it's charts. Decrementing the
size back will fix the appearance of the GKrellM window. This works on
the three installations that I use (sid, sarge & ubuntu). For a
colleague of mine, changing workspaces used to fix the problem (at least
in the RC days, now he's a KDE fanboy).
