Gecko & Invisible Startup Screen

During the last days a lot of users did report a problem with the Gecko rendering. The effect is that right after startup the HTML pane which normally displays a welcome screen does not get drawn at all. The problem isn't really critical because after the first click the HTML pane will be drawn correctly, it just looks ugly...

While I do not know what exactly causes this effect it seems to affect other applications that use Gecko too (e.g. devhelp). It was evident in Debian Unstable some months ago and now seems to happen to a lot of Gentoo users. If anyone reading this knows more about the exact reason please let me know!
