Are you sure this isn't just the difference between opaque resizing
and dragging (ie with the window contents being redrawn continuously
duing the movement) and simple "rubberbanding", which is much less
demanding on your graphics card?

With a good graphics card opaque drawing is ok, but it's best to
switch it off on an X terminal.
