Redraw issue in OS X Leopard

This happens quite often on any version of Mac OS X. It happens  
particularly when you open a stack and don't give Revolution  
sufficient time to redraw the window, because other handlers are  
still running. For example, handlers called by the preOpenStack  
handler. Do you have any complex scripts that are called by resume or  
resumeStack handlers?

It also happens if Revolution is locked up by e.g. a repeat loop or a  
recursive script, while you bring Revolution to the back and then to  
the front again.

My first guess is that Revolution needs more time to redraw the  

Of course, it could also be an issue specific to Leopard. If it is, I  
can't help you yet.
