When I switch from gvim to another application and then after some time switch back gvim window appears blank with cursor blinking in the middle. Sometimes toolbar and tabs look like a white space.

When I opening a new tab, tab bar doesn't refresh itself and shows the same tabs as before opening new tab. When I resizing window everything goes back to normal.
