OpenGL canvas flashing
What I am using the OpenGL canvas in PCBnew it flashes from the PCB layout to some other frame buffer it seems. It is not always that background that the canvas is replaced with. Sometimes it goes to a the default black back ground as if nothing has been placed there.
I am not sure if this is related or not (I think it is) but the 3D viewing only works for smaller views.
