I'm seeing the same; it looks like every other stripe of some pixmaps
contains garbage from other pixmaps. As I suspect Eric wouldn't have
committed this if he saw the same :), and I'm also running on an M9 and
PPC, I suspect this may be specific to some aspect of our setups.

Interesting, I didn't see this when I tried "always" shortly after it
was introduced, so this actually seems to be due to another recent
change in EXA, or maybe even somewhere else. Can you do a CVS bisect? :)
