I had another thought on this and wanted to throw it out there. Since 
this is at heart a race condition caused by asynchronous GraphicsExpose 
events following XCopyArea, wouldn't the problem be fixed by doing an 
XSync right before the scroll? I can't imagine the performance 
degradation would be that serious, and it sounds a whole lot simpler 
than some of the other proposals.
