OK.  Created a new user account on the system, called 'test2' using 
'useradd -m test2'.  The result was a user account with just the 
standard .bashrc, .bash_logout and .profile files.  Nothing else.

Logged in, started X with 'startx' and then brought up the 
xfce4-terminal.  Same behaviour as previously: the title/borders are not 
rendered, but seem to exist.  I also noticed that dragging the window 
around causes whatever background existed behind the (invisible) title 
to move as well.

Checked the compositor settings: not selected, and not greyed out either.

The X11 driver is 'neomagic'.

Now that I have noticed the movement of the background images on 
click-and-drag, it's almost as if everything is working correctly, 
except for the screen rendering for the title/borders.  It's bizarre 
that it's just this one application.

I'm not an X11 programmer, but is it possible for the terminal program 
to cause the window manager to mess up the title/border rendering?

I don't know if it will be any use, but I have attached the output of 
xdpyinfo and a copy of my xorg.conf file.
