For the record, I saw the same behaviour a few days back on PPC Linux, but it was only inside my experimental GUI and not with the CLI. I assumed it was a problem with my GUI code. The "Display list redraw incomplete" message was intermittent, but the opening of the extra windows was fairly consistent (but they popped up and then closed).

I don't remember the exact triggering mechanism, and I don't remember seeing it recently. I can't reproduce it on my desktop, which is i486 Linux (according to R). I'll try the ppc when I get home.
