Hi Norbert,
Thanks for checking.  I'll see if I can replicate this sometime, but
probably not until next week at the best.

I wonder if there are too many redraws or something.
Under X11, tweaking Backing Store might help.



    Hi Christopher,
    Just a note: Ptolemy behaves the same as Kepler. 
    I will try some Remote Desktop tool whenever I will be allowed to do that.
