Looks like a problem with your xorg video driver.

Identify your video card.  Read xorg's driver-specific notes for your 
hardware.  By default, all hardware acceleration options are enabled.  Try 
disabling hardware acceleration, one option at the time, to see if it cures 
your display corruption.
