The second call to display_page() could be skipped if and only if the
following is true: when display_page() was called before, during
incremental rendering, it was called for the same range of lines and
HText_trimHightext() had been done.

But I don't understand why the screen repaints even if display_page()
is called again: there are refresh() calls, but they shouldn't result
in a complete redraw unless clearok() or clear() have been called,
or erase() and then refresh(), and I don't see where that happens.
