It triggers redisplay, yes, but that's not the problem.  The problem
is here:

Emacs thinks that the frame is garbaged, so it clears the enabled_p
flag of all of the screen lines on that frame, at the beginning of
each redisplay cycle.

This all sounds depressingly similar to what we found in bug #13864,
which was supposed to be fixed long ago.  Please use the technique
described in http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=13864#68 to
find out what code sets the frame's garbaged flag.  (The line numbers
cited in that message are different now, so be sure to use the current
ones.)

Does the recipe you use involve more than one frame, somehow?  The
problem fixed in bug #13864 was in this snippet from frame.c:

  if (FRAME_TERMCAP_P (XFRAME (frame)) || FRAME_MSDOS_P (XFRAME (frame)))
    {
      Lisp_Object top_frame = FRAME_TTY (XFRAME (frame))->top_frame;

      /* Don't mark the frame garbaged and/or obscured if we are
         switching to the frame that is already the top frame of that
         TTY.  */
      if (!EQ (frame, top_frame))
        {
          if (FRAMEP (top_frame))
            /* Mark previously displayed frame as now obscured.  */
            SET_FRAME_VISIBLE (XFRAME (top_frame), 2);
          SET_FRAME_VISIBLE (XFRAME (frame), 1);  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        }
      FRAME_TTY (XFRAME (frame))->top_frame = frame;
    }

The marked call to SET_FRAME_VISIBLE would set the frame's garbaged
flag.  The solution was to avoid doing that if FRAME is already the
top frame shown on that terminal (the EQ test and the comment before
it were added as part of fixing that bug).  Perhaps in your case this
logic is somehow not working?
