When doing red (am in vi editor) and switch to another
virtual desktop and back, nothing is redrawn (except
vi).

    Mged blocks until red returns by design. This prevents users from modifying or
    deleting objects that are being modified in red.

    I can see where it might be nice to look at other things in the database while
    running red. There would be a modest amount of work to make red another
    thread, as opposed to blocking. Some syncronization efffort needs to be done
    to handle the race condition if objects are modified in both mged and red.

    Not likely going to be addressed anytime soon given the rather minimal benefit and level of effort it would entail. It is intentional as presently designed so it would be a feature request rather than a bug regardless to change the behavior.
