Using a browser under X, I sometimes see pixelation or distortion when scrolling.  I sometimes also see this when entering text into the URL bar.  If I wait long enough, it goes away.  I first saw this problem under NetBSD-9 and still see it under the current stable version.  The problem did not occur under NetBSD-8 or 8.1.  The hardware is a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon.

When booting, I see a couple of errors:

Start X, then start up a browser such as "netsurf".  Observe pixelation either in the URL bar or when scrolling down.  The problem happens often, but not always.

Revert to NetBSD-8 or 8.1
