Yes -noxdamage has made a huge improvement but I thought there is no
harm in seeing if I am running compiz as if this is the original
problem I would rather remove compiz as it is not needed for a HTPC
machine - perhaps one day Mythbuntu will automatically do it?

As the documentation seems to indicate the -noxdamage is designed to
make systems running compiz work I suspect I am running compiz but
would like to be sure.

Just do not want to run 'xfwm4 --replace &' without knowing what it
does?  Does it immediately replace XFCE with the default window
manager or does it ask questions?

Is an xterm just a terminal windows got from Accessories - Terminal or
do I need to use something different if changing the Windows Manager?
