Just to say that the assumption that this results from "a buggy Linux
window manager" may not be correct.
I'm not competent to commnent on that but FWIW, I saw a similar behaviour
on Mac OS only yesterday. In beta 2.02, rev's window decorations picker
appeared and rapidly disappeared in response to a button click in the
inspector. In my case Quit and restart cleared the behaviour. Can't
reproduce it, sorry, but I thought it worth mentioning.
