Are you using Compiz, by any chance?  I had this problem with Compiz -
my workaround was to shade and unshade the RPCemu window.

AFAICT, it's a Compiz problem that crops up when the RPCemu window
changes size for whatever reason and compiz fails to notice that it
needs to redraw a different area.  Doing something that causes compiz
to re-evaluate its idea of the window's size (shade/unshade in my
case, fullscreen/window in yours) kicks compiz into getting it right.

It's worth noting that RPCemu's window changes size several times
during the RISC OS startup, hence the problem manifests as soon as
things get properly going.

In the end, for unrelated reasons, I stopped using Compiz....  this
was just one extra problems that solved ;)
