Hi John, the problem is that in macOS Mojave Apple completely removed
the method we were using to draw the frame. Unfortunately, like you
say, the issues we’re still seeing are hard to reproduce consistently.

We have had one reproducible bug report (bug#33864). I’ve got a fix
for that, so hopefully that makes a difference in situations other
than the reported behaviour.
