But I tend to do this somewhat regularly, and don't see this.

EXCEPT:  if I'm using xcompmgr, which seems to get confused in this and
similar cases.  (If you use a compositing manager, it draws and positions
all actual windows; an application "window" exists but is never mapped.
 Compositing in X is rather hacky.)  Are you using xcompmgr, by any chance?

I have heard that compton fixes this issue with xcompmgr, but have not been
able to verify.
