After reading through that thread, it seems there is still a lot of
uncertainty with regard to different versions of GTK3. Does it help at all
if you put the following in your `~/.textadept/properties.lua`?

   buffer.buffered_draw = false

If not, we might just have to wait until Scintilla fixes the problem on
its own.
