Browser window checkerboards and repaints when navigated to from multi-task view

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Open a web page in Maemo Browser
2. Minimize it so that you are in the multi-task view
3. Tap on the browser window to bring it back into focus
Browser window returns just like every other app, without a blink/flickr.
Browser windows blinks once before web page is viewable.
ok, it's painting a checkboard (roughly "no rendered content") and then we
paint the actual page.
there are internal builds with this fixed. not sure about release plans.
This could be a more generic version of bug 6215.
*** Bug 6215 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Looks like int-145537 to me which is not reproducible in the internal version
(Which does not mean that it's necessarily fixed, but probably by some side
Can't reproduce this in 2.2009.51-1. Thus I think we can mark this as fixed and
The problem reported here should be fixed in the update released today for
public: The Maemo5 update version 2.2009.51-1 (also called "PR1.1" sometimes).
Please leave a comment if the problem is not fixed for you in this update
I'm afraid I still get the blink/flicker when maximising browser windows in
2.2009.51-1 (this is the image released on 23 Dec 2009 not 14 Jan 2009).
One web site that blinks almost all the time is http://news.bbc.co.uk.
Sometimes http://news.bbc.co.uk will stop blinking as it is maximised, but
minimising it and maximising another minimised app window (doesn't have to be
another browser window, eg. try Contacts) and then maximising
http://news.bbc.co.uk again will almost always result in the browser window
It's still happening in PR1.1, just that the redraw is a bit faster, but still
Tim/Neil/Andrei: we have a problem. I can't allow you guys to resurrect bugs
continuously. Even if the bug isn't really fixed, if you don't do a good job of
filing your bugs, you'll have to accept poor resolutions for them.
Andre: i'm pretty sure you picked the wrong internal bug. this bug clearly
mentions checkerboard, the internal picture (yay!) shows a truncated view in
the dashboard which hopefully you'll accept is a different problem.
Andrei/Neil/Tim: ctrl-shift-p will take a screen shot. And there's an app iirc
which enables you to use the camera button to take screen shots.
I think actually what you'll find is that what we're dealing with is a feature
and not a bug. I've refile this as bug 8010 with complete steps to reproduce
and then resolve it.
DO NOT REOPEN THIS BUG. DOING SO WILL EARN YOU A PERMANENT NAUGHTY BIT.
Fixed in PR1.2
