On OSX 10.11, I get a message window with an extra empty line between
the numbers. By clicking I can switch views but not edit anything
anymore. It appears as if two message views have been created. I can
also close views or buffers but not focus them anymore.

If I just the `run` command on the display looks fine (no extra
line, no doubled split view) but otherwise the same freezing, no cursor
movement or setting possible.
