I am running Debian Stretch on my main computer.  I have an AMDFX-8320
Eight-Core Processor on a ASUS MSAR2.0 Moptherboard and 8GB of running
XFCE4.  I an encountering a rather odd problem for which I have no
explanation.

If I have more that three or four apps open at one time, all of the
non-active windows will pop open at random and predictable times with
the result that no one window will be useable, unless I close every
app that's open.

This performance is rather annoying and rather disruptive.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
as a wild shot in the dark I would try with another mouse to rule that out.
