Yes, that's it.  There's a bug in 1.6.2 that causes your console
window to go back to normal size (from zoomed or minimized) after all
sorts of operations that should have no such effect, including
winMenuAdd().  I fixed that for 1.7.0, but unfortunately the fix had
the side effect of stopping the MDI frame from redrawing itself when
it needs to.

I've looked at the Graphapp code, and it looks like it would be
time-consuming to figure out how to fix the redraw problem properly.
For now I'll revert to the 1.6.2 behaviour in places where it looks
like a redraw is needed.
