After further testing, I can say that this bug does happen, but inconsistently,
and with no obvious way to reproduce. When it does happen, I get the following

X Error of failed request: RenderBadPicture (invalid Picture parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request: 139 (RENDER)
  Minor opcode of failed request: 8 (RenderComposite)
  Picture id in failed request: 0x1
  Serial number of failed request: 4871
  Current serial number in output stream: 5009

It also isn't tied to vim. I tried using joe -asis and less, with the same
result. Interestingly enough, cat iconlookup doesn't crash st, even when
scrolling back with tmux to the offending lines.
