translators to read other languages for them.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Start emacs by:
emacs -nw --no-init

Then do the following:
Split the window vertically: C-x 2 (split-window-vertically)
Split the window horizontally: C-x 3 (split-window-horizontally)
Enlarge the window: C-x ^ (enlarge-window)

The window setup should look something like:

|c       |        |
|   1    |   2    |
|                 |
|        3        |

c indicates the position of the cursor, numbers indicate which window
I am referring to.

After these three actions, window 2 "flashes" with every key I type.
Usually it alternates between showing the contents of window 2 missing
the mode line and showing the mode line of window2 but not the
contents.  Sometimes (although I couldn't reproduce it, window 2
disappears all together (no content and no mode line).  I realize this
probably isn't very clear, so I set up a page of screenshots and
description of keystroke sequences at:

I also get this behavior with GNU Emacs
(i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit) on the same system, and with GNU
Emacs (sparc-sun-solaris2.6, X toolkit) on our school's sun

This behavior only happens in text mode.  I have verified it on my
potato box in Eterm, in a stock xterm, and on the console

"Attention, Seekers everywhere!  I was right!  Everything I knew *was* wrong!"
