Thanks for the suggestion. The question about why I didn't write to the
backbuffer and flip was indeed answered correctly by the other poster: I
don't want to spend the same time again drawing the complete screen in the
backbuffer. It's also a bit pragmatic as the current code I have uses
direct frontbuffer writes and it would be a lot of work to get them out.
I'm not sure I'm comfortable enough yet with Linux and X to hack (and
compile) the source code, but I'll definately have a look as time permits.
