Not just you, i've been experiencing them too. As has someone else on the
forums. http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=37987

I can't work it out. I had it badly yesterday, repeatedly, and today it's
only happened once. Nothing in Xorg log. Yesterday was full xfce4, today
was pekwm+xfce-mcs-manager+xfce-panel+xfdesktop. Now i'm just running
pekwm to see if it was xfce4 causing it... It's not firefox, I use opera.

Jacek in the thread above was also running xfce4, so it's possible it
could be that. But... it's difficult to track down, it could be an X

It's not an nvidia issue, as i'm running on intel integrated, 855GM (i810
driver). [testing] repo here too.
