Now that's an interesting one, and it definitely suggests the
problem might be intrinsic to XFree.  Could you try it with an
overlap from some other shaped window -- perhaps the original
classic shaped application, xeyes?  Indeed, if the problem is
as simple as it looks, you should be able to reproduce it by
overlapping xeyes against another window while running under
another window manager than wmx.

Now that's easier said than done.  It's kind of complicated.
(Did I need to say that?)  Definitely worth some experimentation
with overlapping shaped non-wmx windows first.

btw, is your video card anything unusual?
