Thanks for the trace output.

As far as I can tell, I don't see a better location to place the test. (I have to include myself in the group who have no idea why drawRect is being called when the frame is miniatured.) I would suggest that we add it as you originally suggested.

Alan, what do you say? Have you looked into this?

> Could you enable NSTRACE (by uncommenting the line defining NSTRACE_ENABLED in nsterm.h) and see which function calls `drawRect` (if possible). If that is in a function that is part of Emacs, it's better to check that the frame is visible higher up in the call chain.

here is the relevant part of the trace output:

nsterm.m  : 1595: [ 6322]  x_iconify_frame
nsterm.m  : 6770: [ 6323]  | [EmacsView windowWillMiniaturize:]
nsterm.m  : 6735: [ 6324]  | [EmacsView windowDidResignKey:]
nsterm.m  : 1504: [ 6325]  | | ns_frame_rehighlight
nsterm.m  : 7121: [ 6326]  | [EmacsView windowDidMiniaturize:]
nsterm.m  : 7591: [ 6327]  | [EmacsView drawRect:(X:578 Y:4)/(W:15 H:472)]

If I understand it correctly, the top-level function involved (within nsterm.m) is x_iconify_frame.  The only explicit call pertinent to the issue that I see within it is:

[[view window] miniaturize: NSApp];

at nsterm.m:1615.  I think that the others, from windowWillMiniaturize to drawRect, are callbacks.  The reason why a miniaturize request triggers a drawRect escapes me at this time, but I’m definitely not an expert on this GUI.

Thank you and please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
