Menu Bar and Window content don't paint

I'm running Fedora 8 and KDE and I installed VNC and the Blender rpm.  Blender works fine locally, but when I VNC in from Windows XP 2 on X Display 0, and bring up Blender, the Menu Bar and the window content do not refresh.  Drop down selections show no drop-down box at all.  If I Click the Blender Icon at the bottom of the window bar, to close and then open the Blender window, my updated actions are shown.  This appears to be the only way to get the Blender windows and top Menu bar to display and refresh.

My KDE and Gnome windows all work fine, even through VNC.

Anyone seen this issue before?
