this happens in monsterwm too. I tried to redraw the borders after a
configure request event and this seems to help, but it's not final.
if you open an mplayer window and then open/quit repeatedly a second
mplayer window, you'll see it happen.
it's easier for some reason to reproduce it with a second window, than
just one.
