I have seen it: it seems to be an X11 timing issue. If Benilton is that bothered, he could contribute a patch.

The issue appeared to be that X11 was issuing a repaint on a window after it had been closed: it ought to be possible to block that in the devX11 code -- but it needs someone with a reproducible setup to contribute the patch.
