I think that patch really only affects glass-tty mode and screensaving.
I dont' think thats where your problem lies.

Can you run an app with round-edged buttons? If they end up stretched
horizontally, but not vertically -- so that the "button" ends up a
half-ellipse! -- then you've got an Xserver bug.  Does that sound like
what you're seeing??
