Xorg problem in os9?

Turns out the Sugarlab's track things I spam them after the 4th ticket :-) so I can not file a proper ticket but maybe better here.

Using F11-XO1/os9 with Sugar 0.84.7 Typing quotes (") results in a screen  flicker and the cursor disappearing. You must use the touchpad/mouse to reposition the cursor and click, in order to get back your cursor and be able to type (after an additional screen flicker) again.
Interestingly this is happening when you type <abc "> but not <abc"> (without space).
In the first case they quotes show as curly quotes and in the second as straight (Times New Roman font).
This is not happening in terminal or in Browse.
It is not lethal but very annoying nonetheless ... 

I do not know if this is relevant but the Xorg logs complain about failure to load module "freetype". I guess the screen flicker is also suggestive of something Xorg related.

I attache the Write, Xorg and olpc-dm-X logs in case someone has a better idea.
