Xpra: Ticket #914: screen is frozen until the window is resized/moved

We have a workstation (with Nvidia quadro + centos 7) with xpra. Of the 3 clients 2 of them experience this issue.

The difference between clients is only the processor - two of them (the 8gb one and 6gb one) are amd and the 4gb is intel (and ram, one has 8 gb DDR3, one 6gb DDR3 and one 4gb DDR2)

the 4gb client is working as it should.

On the 8gb and 6gb on the other hand, when oppening a remote session it displays correctly, but when inputing something (e.g typing text, clicking menu, etc) nothing seems to happen. but then, in the typing text scenario, when moving or resizing the window the text appears.

It seems as though the window is not refreshing.

Any other one of you had this problem?
