      It is not a terminal issue, I see it on Windows gvim. I see the issue with
      syntax folding enabled and closed folds in the window; I do not use
      cursorcolumn except for a quick mapping to toggle it on when I want to quickly
      find the cursor, then I toggle it back off.

      Today I finally had a reproducible situation where I see the issue, so I dug
      through my .vimrc to find the lines causing the problem.

      Here are the lines:

      " get rid of scrolloff option for certain buffers like the quickfix and
      " preview windows
      autocmd BufEnter *
      \ if (&ft=='qf' || &previewwindow || (bufname('%') ==# "__Tag_List__" || bufname("%")==?'__Tagbar__')) && !exists('s:scrolloff_sav') |
      \ let s:scrolloff_sav=&scrolloff |
      \ set scrolloff=0 |
      \ endif
      " File type will not be set on the first BufEnter
      autocmd Filetype qf
      \ if !exists('s:scrolloff_sav') |
      \ let s:scrolloff_sav=&scrolloff |
      \ set scrolloff=0 |
      \ endif
      autocmd BufLeave *
      \ if (&ft=='qf' || &previewwindow || (bufname('%') ==# "__Tag_List__" || bufname("%")==?'__Tagbar__')) && exists('s:scrolloff_sav') |
      \ let &scrolloff=s:scrolloff_sav |
      \ unlet s:scrolloff_sav |
      \ endif

      A few relevant settings:


      If I use the following procedure with the above autocmds in my .vimrc, I see the
      popup menu flash briefly and go invisible. The preview window gets updated
      properly as I press the <Up> and <Down> buttons as if the menu was visible.
      <C-N> and <C-P> work as they are supposed to. But the popup menu stays

      1. Edit a C file (the one I used was a proprietary code file for my employer, I
      can't share it, sorry).
      2. Go to a place in the C file in a nested fold (in my code, it is 5 levels
      3. Close all folds with zM
      4. Show the cursor line with zv
      5. Type a partial match and press <C-X><C-O> to start omnicompletion (which
      includes tags, I believe).

      Now I see the issue or not, depending on my autocmds above.

      I think what may be happening is that my autocmds are adjusting scrolloff on
      BufEnter/BufLeave, which triggers because the preview window is most likely
      entered to update it to show the completion menu info. When scrolloff is
      updated, the window positions may change. Perhaps changing window scroll
      position via autocmd while the completion menu is up causes problems.
