Was using KDE + evolution as well - in that a fresh install from
yesterday's tree was used - and saw the exact same thing.  When trying
to configure evolution (edit/preferences), when the menu first comes up,
couldn't even see the icons/menus on the left until pointed the mouse
over there and then they would appear.  Was quite weird, and didnt' see
this before from few days prior.

Can't test as back to F16 but am confirming the behaviour from above.
