I cannot reproduce this: I don't see these redraws at all, using the
HTML page you pointed to.

It could be some issue specific to the default font you use (you don't
say which font is that).  Or some other issue local to, or triggered
by, your local setup.  Because this:

>    * Sometimes parts of the buffer that take longer to redraw

actually says the problem should be highly visible, and yet it was not
reported until now, at least not with such intensity.

I cannot play your screencast here, so I'm not even sure that when you
talk about redrawing you mean the same thing I do.  Therefore, one
possibility is that something is wrong with your X setup or even with
your video hardware and software.

Which is a serious argument in favor of my theory that this is not an
Emacs problem.

Maybe someone else bumped into such problems and could advise you
where to look.
