I'm working on a project where I'm forced to use Windows, so I installed
WinVile-9.7t to have a usable editor.

One thing I've noticed is that moving the cursor with the mouse to a
new line tends to leave cursor droppings behind, i.e., eventually you
end up with black blotches scattered around the screen until you do
a CTRL-L to clean it up.

yes - I recall commenting on it a while back, and spending some time
to try to resolve it.  I think it's due to the logic which grabs the
text-cursor (termed the "Caret"), as it's used in fshow_cursor and
fhide_cursor.  If the cursor isn't hidden, then it would leave a more
noticeable trail - it's been a couple of years since I last dug into it.

There's also a problem with repainting if there's a modal window (such as Task Manager) obscuring part of vile's window. I've seen the same sort of
problem with PuTTY.

I've never observerd anything like that using XVile.

the problem is in the terminal driver...
