X11.app had a bug like this; I think the currently released MacPorts /
MacOSForge XQuartz still has the bug but the upcoming release (it's in rc2 I
think) doesn't.  It also manifests as e.g. the event box in the xev window
not being drawn properly, so you can use that as a test to see if it's the
X11 bug vs. xmonad.
