      I am editing text files with a .java extension. I am using vim 6.0. I am
      using vim (not gvim) with the color support turned on. If I use it without
      color, it then updates the screen while I'm making modifications. When I
      use color, it uses lazyredraw. Lazyredraw is not on however. It just does
      it that way.

      I do not see this sort of behavior. If it is related to rxvt, I am
      clueless. What sort of files are you editing when you see this behavior? I
      take it you are using vim in a terminal; what version of vim? When does the
      problem show up: when you are entering text in Insert mode?

      Not really a solution, but better than paging up and down: try <C-L>
      Normal mode, or <C-O><C-L> in Insert mode. (The <C-O> takes you to Normal
      mode for a single command, <C-L> in this case.)
