This happens to me most times as well.

When I've resized the window when its in a window of itself, I notice for me the redraw can take a bit of time. If I let it sit, it'll eventually redraw the contents.

Does it just stay black?

It just stays black, yes.

But, as I mentioned in the bug report before, in some situations (I think I saw this while searching for an embark location) screen refresh is working well. I guess there's only a refresh trigger for a redraw event missing or something. Toady?

Duplicate of 0001913 I suspect or at least associated with it.

@Cryten: I agree

To me it looks like this one has been solved. Is anyone else still experiencing this issue?

Sounds like it was indeed fixed. If anyone finds otherwise, feel free to PM me on the forums so I can reopen this report.
