I've switched my daily-use XEmacs over to 21.2, and observed that the
progress bar seems to update the whole widget, including text, every
time the bar is extended. (XEmacs is running on a relatively slow,
loaded machine, across a 10Mbps LAN, and the local X server is XF86
4.0, which seems to have some slow painting issues on my workstation.)
This is not what I would call widget-like behavior, because there
should be no exposes being generated: the widget is the top window in
Is this a problem with Falk's progress bar widget, or with XEmacs?
The buffer tabs widget may have similar behavior in the sense that the
whole thing often gets redrawn just because I change messages in VM
(but this may be associated with VM's use of a presentation buffer
separate from the folder buffer---it may very well be that the buffer
list gets "dirtied" from the point of view of the buffers tabs).
OTOH, the tabs widget often seems to be already on screen while the
rest of the frame gets redrawn.
