This is exactly what I am seeing.

Yes there were several off topic tangents. As of now the prime
suspects are some interactions with QT or with eglibc. But there is
not obvious solution. The time zone issue didn't do anything for me,
and it some more knowledgeable people seemed to think it was highly
unlikely to be related. There was a ticket opened that could help.
They would change things so that only objects that are animated in
some way would get repainted. Currently everything is being redrawn.
But that ticket doesn't have a patch with it.
