gnome-terminal glitch causes upper left of screen freeze

HI, I have an unusual issue with gnome-terminal.
When it launches, sometimes a few mins later, the upper left of the screen (where gnome-terminal sits) freezes and becomes unresponsive. The cursor always stays as the ‘text entry’ cursor when in the region. If I alt-drag the window and close, nothing changes.
It only goes away when I right click the area (even if I have moved/closed the terminal window) I have terminal options so I select ‘close’ then the screen resumes.
Only issue is: this happens all the time + the desktop icons cannot be clicked after the closes…

System version: 11.4 Gnome 2.32 - tried re-install - happens on a fresh install
MAchine: Acer Aspire D255 - Atom N550 Intel GMA 3150


Any ideas?

Disable the desktop effects if you have them enabled and check if the
problem is still there. Logout and login after disabling the effects (not
because that is needed just to have defined base to test).
