We can do a test: start lynx with -partial_thres=2 and follow a slow link
to see several incremental stages. If you got >1 'refresh' the problem
in multiple invoking of HText_pageDisplay()  and if you got exactly 1 refresh
- something after getfile(), between case NORMAL and subsequent
HText_pageDisplay in mainloop (may probably fixed).
