Sometimes when I do something like saving, opening another file or another tab, the screen isn't changing states properly. At first I thought it was just my computer being slow, but then I noticed that after any keypress the screen updates and everything is okay.

It looks like this:

Screen update bug

but after a keypress everything updates and the file opens properly:

Proper view

What can I do to prevent this from happening? It's really annoying!

    You should be able to press <C-l> to force a screen update. Other than that, this is either something in a plugin, or a bug... Try disabling all plugins. – Martin Tournoij Jan 13 '16 at 13:46
  • The screen updates normally after any keypress; it's not that it gets stuck. But this brief period before next keypress just doesn't look pretty. And I didn't mess with any of the plugins, nor have I installed any new the day this started; I'll try, but I don't think the problem is in there. – Akiiino Jan 13 '16 at 18:51

    If this behavior continues after running mvim -u NONE -U NONE -N, and you're not running in fullscreen (or split screen on El Cap), you should probably file a bug and we'll look at it. Note that there are a few outstanding issues with fullscreen/split-screen right now. – user72 Jan 13 '16 at 22:09

Well, it seems that the problem is gone. I didn't even notice when this happened, but I'm fine with that
