I seem to remember a recommendation to use the older 11.3.1 on Intel 
macs to avoid the screen flickering and refresh problems. (You might 
check the archives from May 11-14, 2011 for more details.  I believe the 
thread was titled "Flickering display on Mac OS X Intel")
I'm using 11.4.4 on Snow Leopard and have found a few idiosyncratic 
workarounds (using view source and frequently refreshing and saving the 
page), but it is definitely annoying.

When I make changes, especially in the lower half of the editing window, the display does not refresh properly but is left garbled until I do some scrolling to force a refresh.  Are there settings to address this?
