I just upgraded from SuSE 12.2 to 12.3 Linux, and now with THE 3.2 when in 'insert' mode the screen does not show the inserted characters unless I force a screen refresh by doing something like a page down / page up.
So, if I am in input mode, and I type 'This is a new line' on line one of the file, the cursor moves, but the screen remains blank. If I then page down/page up, 'This is a new line' show up on line one.
Inserting works ok on the command line.
There was nothing mentioned in the SuSE upgrade docs.
Insert in vi still works as expected.
