I have had this problem in the past with Fedora 9, I believe using ATI graphics cards. I tracked it down to glxgears (posted to this group then) getting invoked and eliminated it to get around this problem. Specifically, I did

yum erase glx-utils

This may not work for you because you may use glxgears for something but it did work for me.
