Good idea indeed: the problem not only occurs with xfce4-terminal but
also with gnome-terminal, lxterminal and sakura. But no problem with

I may give it a try tonight if it can help, but my / partition is pretty
small and I only have 130 MB left, so I guess it's gonna be quite long

No special configuration, I am using the default setup. I tried
upgrading with 2.6.39, and now it gets even more weird. Once I configure
the dual screen mode using xrandr, the LCD setup is 800x600. And
everything works fine, the windows display normally. But as soon as I
set it back to a resolution higher than 1024x768, the bug reappears.

I hope this can help
