I too have seen this, only with my terminal. I think it's a problem with
the bottomstack patch (although you mentioned problems in monocle so maybe
it's dwm). I've been meaning to look into it and try to fix it but I
haven't had time. I've noticed it on my eeepc and on my desktop. If I get
a chance I'll look into it later this week.
