Description of problem:
When moving windows across the x3270 window characters are not always redrawn correctly. Some parts (a singe/a few pixel, a line or a small region of characters) are missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move some windows across the terminal window.
2. Switch between windows
Actual Results: Some characters are not drawn correctly. The "missing parts" are in background colour. (I'll attach a screenshot)
This bug appears sporadically. Moving the terminal window seems to solve the problem; but is not an adequate workaround for power-users.
