Windows occasionally not updated


I recently noticed a very weird problem. I don't think I updated around the time it appeared, though. In the first place, I pinned my xserver, because the last update broke all graphics, because the NVIDIA driver didn't support the new ABI for xserver I think.

I notice the problem most prominently in xfce4-terminal, but I think also sometimes in scite, so I think it may be a more general problem. When I type something it often seems like it is run, but the output is not shown. E.g. in terminal I press enter, but the result is only shown after I press another key or when I try to move the window(!). In SciTE it is similar, I press a key, but it is not shown for a while, or until I press another key. At first I thought my PC was just lagging because of some kind of CPU intensive task, but there is none. It's not game breaking, but over time quite obnoxious.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be and how to solve it?

Some possibly relevant information:
- I'm using two monitors with this autostart script (I think, I created this with arandr):

xrandr --output DVI-D-0 --off --output HDMI-0 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output DVI-I-1 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --pos 1920x0 --rotate normal --output DVI-I-0 --off --output DP-1 --off --output DP-0 --off

- GTX 760 (main GPU, monitors connected to this) + GTX 650 Ti (only used for CUDA) (without SLI of course)
