Please try this:
1) Install from the ISO to hard drive.
2) mv /opt/ltsp/i386 /opt/ltsp/i386-f10
3) ltps-build-client --release=9
This builds a F9 client chroot instead of F10.

You can swap i386 and i386-f10 (run ltsp-update-kernels after you swap 
their locations) and compare client behavior between F9 and F10.  It is 
possible that this is a new X bug in F10 that was not present in F9. 
What kind of client hardware is this?  Is all client hardware of other 
chipsets affected as well?
