That's using gtk/directfb for the installer, right?  There are a bunch  
of patches needed for gdk/directfb to fix a pile of bugs -- the  
patches are available at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/ 
DFBPorting#GTK-DFB_Package_Installation and come from Denis, the  
DirectFB maintainer.  I'm not sure what the status is of getting the  
gdk patches upstream.  It's entirely likely that something in that set  
will fix whatever gtk was or wasn't doing that caused problems with  
dfb (I remember seeing similar problems in mozilla before a set of  
updated gdk patches).
