Clearly some do as there is this bug report quoted above and
also http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=354422
The problem appears to be a race condition in metacity;
thus it will depend on your usage patterns, relative speeds
of variour hardware and software components involed, luck,
a phase of the moon, etc., etc.

As I understand a discussion on bugzilla.gnome.org the race
is caused by multiple uses of a meta_display_get_current_time()
function and the current metacity version removes at least
some of these.  Most likely it would be the best if you would
add your comments and observations to
The current status of this bug is FIXED and it appears that
you have an evidence that this is not the case.
