Fixed in K6. Give it a try.

Most likely the same bug. Scrolling was also affected.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised (once the bugs get fixed :)).

Try this: get listview 1.138. Now, get a lot of newsgroups 
(like All of them), and scroll by continuously pressing the up or down
arrow on the scroll bar. Watch the flickering. Now to the same with
the latest patches. Also, notice how snappy the newsgroup windows shows 
up now. Refreshes should be faster now as well. 

We're not gonna feel as fast as Windows, that's that. But we shouldn't 
be dogs either. Please let me know if you find some things sluggish,
or just plain broken.
