Popup windows refresh problems with Red Hat Linux 8.0

I have a strange problem with Red Hat Linux 8.0
on my HP XW4100 workstation. Popup windows
(like those in the gnome menu), tooltips etc..
don't get refreshed properly. The popup window
will stay on the screen, even after moving the
mouse cursor and clicking on a different window.
These windows will only disappear only when covered by another window, which will then refresh this portion of the display.

All applications with popups, tooltips etc.
are affected. I tried under KDE and other windows manager but the problem still persists.

Everything was working fine on this system until I installed an internal application
(that I don't have control over) and rebooted the system. This is the only problem I have
on this system.

Any idea of what could have caused this problem? Is there a Xwindows config file that could have been modified? The supplier of our internal application does not see this issue on his side. It's really bizarre.

Update X and gdm !
Go to ftp.redhat.com and download latest rpms for your X system.

What is this application messing up your X ?
