That sounds similar to a problem we saw last year that was caused by a
broken interaction between cairo and the radeon x11 driver.

Do you see any similar effects when running firefox ?

As a data point, I'm running pan from pkgsrc on 6.99.21/amd64 without
any problems. I haven't done a complete pkgsrc build but most things
are up to date.
