There's no simple way - essentially what you'd have to do would be to
detect if a refresh was incomplete and tell your application to combine
things, e.g., make a window move by two columns at a time rather than by
one (but of course the input would still "really" be one column).

There's no function defined for this, but one could be written, e.g.,
checking if there are pending changes to a window after a refresh or
doupdate is completed.

I have been unable to find a way of doing this. Do I need to play with the internals of WINDOW or some other structure?
