Graphics draw issues with Silicon Motion Graphics in ThinkPad

Trying to revive an old machine here, installed Lubuntu 12.04 on an CF card and plugged it into my old ThinkPad 240Z using VMWare, since the machine doesn't have a CD-ROM (well, a bootable one at least, just an old honkin' PCMCIA one.)



All is well and things run pretty smooth, except for one thing: screen draw issues, see this:

Strangely, it goes away if I have Chromium or LXTerminal opened on maximize, and happens only on other applications that uses window manager cons of some sort (e.g. Pidgin, control panels, etc).



I checked the siliconmotion driver is already installed in Synaptic.
