(Cygwin, Multiple Windows) on Windows 7.

I double clicked the title so that it went full screen.  However, I'm seeing lots of jerky refreshes (entire window appears to draw a few pixels down and then redraw where it belongs) when using colon commands (the first ':' is all that is needed to reproduce this).   It appears to reproduce 3 or 4 times and then finally behave (e.g., : <esc> : <esc> : <esc> ...)   when it behaves, all I need to do is move the cursor in my window and it will start acting up again with the next colon command.

It doesn't appear to do it when in a normal window mode, only when the window is full screen.

I can reproduce this with CygwinX, at least as far back as v18.  I don't see any workaround for it other than un-maximizing the window and dragging it out over the screen.

We'll take a look at it and see if there's anything we can do about it.  Thanks for the report.
