Oh, good I’m glad you're able to test it now. I was able to get the
patch to apply properly by deleting everything in .git/hooks and then
applying your patch to emacs-26. I was then able to merge that to
master and it worked.

It is, however, unusably slow. The performance degrades more the
bigger the frame is. I’ve gone back to what I was using before (master
+ the patch you reference below).

Yes, it is still usable, though if I remember correctly it lessens the
overall blank glitches (which still happen even w/ the patch). So yes,
it’s usable, but you do occasionally have to resize the window or do
something else to get it to repaint. You still have to w/ the patch,
just less often.

Thanks,

Aaron
