It might be.  But without a testable program, I can only guess.

Taking a look at tvision, for instance, that wouldn't be the right
source (because the pastebin examples use UTF-8, and in any case
tvision is not exactly a _curses_ application, but mostly terminfo).

The shorter example doesn't show any problem; the longer is (something)
indexing in a scrolling region (rather than repainting the box)
and painting the fill-character (slow).

To discuss that, I need a simple program that I can run :-)
The video doesn't match either of those pastebin examples.
