I just did a 'git pull' and 'sudo make install' on 2013-07-07 at 22:55 UTC to make sure I had the latest.

The problem is that when using the display_file command (bound to 'i' by default) to view a file, typing Ctrl-L to redraw the window does not completely redraw the window.


1.  Start ranger.
2.  Type
3.  Execute
:shell ( sleep 5; echo hello ) &
4.  Quickly (within much less than 5 seconds) type
    to view the _init_.py file.
5.  The string "hello" will overwrite the first five characters of the firs line of the _init_.py file, so that the first two lines of the display will look like this:

helloles in this module contain helper functions used in configuration files."""

6.  Type Ctrl-L to redraw the display.  The first two lines of the display now look like this.


The behavior is the same using either a GNOME Terminal 2.32.0 or an xterm X.Org
