[Bug 1043102] [NEW] The screen doesn't refresh properly


Public bug reported:

The screen doesn't refresh properly. When I type in the terminal and I
press the up or down arrow keys, the commands don't get refreshed. I
have to move the cursor over the command or press on the title bar or
something else for it to refresh.

Even in windows which have tabs. When I change from one tab to another,
the window doesn't refresh. Again I have to press on something else.

It happens in other windows and in browsers too. Also nautilus doesn't refresh folder contents sometimes. 
Typing text into gedit is also a problem.

It doesn't happen in Unity 2D and Gnome 3.
I just have a Intel HD 3000 integrated graphic card.
