Suggestion: If your hardware supports it, turn on compositing
(Preferences > Look and Feel > Desktop Effects if using Gnome). As a
side effect of drawing the windows offscreen and composing them into the
final screen image, the windows are always mapped (unless minimized,
even if not on the active desktop), do not suffer any damage when
obscured, and therefore require far fewer redraws.

I often run apps at home and display them at work, and enabling Desktop
Effects makes a world of difference.
