Code blocks might make you a nice editor and a nice debugger.  But our build system is
CMake, and that is unlikely to ever change.

Really the easiest way to jump in, on Windows, is to use Brians kicad-winbuilder script.
Google for that, its on launchpad.  Enter one command, presto.

As for the eeschema drawing remnants, grep eechema for "Dirty"  DirtyRect or something
like that.  At the end of the operation, if you call that function with a rectangle
comprizign the dirty region, this will redraw that region of the screen (and more, but
this subject to change.)
