Yes, I've found this to be true as well. It's very annoying to see no
update in the screen when I open up a new tab in the background (from a

get used to using many tabs, this will hit them in the face, so to

an epiphany window; their sizes being 80x80+418-78 and 698x1040-0-78. I
once in a while open up a gpdf or ggv window to do some reading, but
often I need to open it up in a second desktop anyway, so it's not that
