   That's good info, but why then does Fluxbox exhibit the same pixelation 
desktop crash when an xterm is launched?

   I can start fluxbox and I can look at the menus (change config settings in 
the menu), but as soon as I launch an app, the desktop does the same 
checkerboard wrap.

   I have no doubt that there are bugs in the Trinity code, but regardless, it 
shouldn't effect fluxbox.

   When running flux, I didn't get a backtrace dumped to the console running 
startx, but I had to click in the blind to shut it down after the screen went nuts.

   Hopefully this isn't one of those 'coincidences' where there are 2 bugs. (1 
in Trinity and another in X effecting both Trinity and Fluxbox)

   What has me wondering is -- this is a brand new Arch install with nothing but 
base, base-devel, xorg and fluxbox on it (plus the Trinity I built).

   No new hardware (same laptop I run Arch on all the time). I'll try 
downgrading xorg and trying again and let you know how that goes. Let me know if 
you have any other thoughts. Thanks.
