Do you understand the problems, though?

The crucial question is why isn't redisplay being called as it was
called before the changes?  One way of answering that would be to run
the previous version under a debugger, put a breakpoint in
redisplay_internal, show a backtrace to see who called it, and
continue.  Then do the same in the new version, and see if you can
spot any differences.

Do you really need to type several keys to get redisplay?  Or is it
enough to type just one and wait for some time?  IOW, if you type one
key, then wait, does redisplay ever happen?

Thanks.
