[Bug 1503310] Re: window content doesn't refresh, only if window is moved


I'm experiencin the same issue. I can quote all of B. Nale's comment.
Nautilus, Gedit, Firefox... I have to drag the window to force repainting most of the time.

My current settings:

$ lsb_release -a

I can not try upgrading Ubuntu to next LTS yet because I'm finishing
some critical work first.
