I'm on Windows 2K, using also the latest CVS snapshot, though my .emacs
is only 59,663 bytes long ;-)

With Kim's first patch the redisplay bug that affected redrawing after
backspace deleting, etc. has disappeared.

The second bug (the fist, really, as it started to happen earlier) is
not as severe as the other because it doesn't show very often. In
particular, I can do heavy editing for hours and not see it.

The only way to show it that I know is what I've reported: bring up NEWS,
activate ruler-mode and scroll down. Once the cursor reaches the bottom
line, the redisplay starts to behave incorrectly. In all cases, if you
do <down> and the display is garbled, after three or so seconds of
inactivity a new redisplay happens and all is apparently well.

Definitively the bug is still here.
