Since the flickering of x5250 drives me crazy, I decided to experiment
with fixing it myself.

I have experimented heavily with this. Commenting those out does give nice results, except that sooner or later some artifacts get left on the screen. I have so far been unable to completely fix this. I rewrote it significantly in version 0.4.4 to handle most situations. Hopefully I can figure out the remaining problems and then do what you did below.

I found that if I go into the source and comment out the two calls to
XClearWindow, the flickering is completely eliminated.  I haven't found
anywhere that this causes problems (yet) but I haven't played much with
windows or subwindows.

Does anyone know if there's a reason not to remove the calls to
XClearWindow?  Obviously, anytime you clear the window and re-draw it,
you're going to get a flicker.

I have experienced the most problems with the 36 environment. Also, using SEU and bringing in another source member in the bottom half of the screen results in a line being left. Also, I believe the ruler doesn't erase properly if you turn that on.
