Hello Sadrul,

I have switched my regular screen environment to the new version and now
that I use it all day, I can't help but notice the constant flickering
when I enter text or scroll the display.

This is even more noticeable when I run vim with a white background,
where I see streaks of black flashing by as I scroll up or down the
display one page at at time.

I don't know if this is particular to my setup or if anyone else sees
this as well.

If not, the problem is that it does not only happen when the screen is
split but also when working on an unsplit screen.

While it may be temporarily acceptable to those users who have a real
need for vertical splits, it may not go down so well with others. 

Although I'm not aware of such a problem having occurred in the past,
those users would probably consider the fix to have caused something
similar to 'regression'.
