document tab and windows do not update or redraw correctly

Bug Description

After upgrading to Ubunutu 16.10 due to an unrelated driver issue, I discovered the yakkety package for Codeblocks (16.01+dfsg-2) has some unfortunate bugs in window redraw. Specifically, document windows displayed in the tab bar above the main editor fail to redraw or update after a few moments of the application's opening. Click locations remain active, but the display on document open or close is not updated. Resizing the window to attempt to force a redraw results in other panels not updating their display properly as well. The editor display itself remains active and functions as expected.

Description: Ubuntu 16.10
Release: 16.10

Please see this link in Code::Blocks forum with Backtrace attached:,22115.0.html

Same issue in Ubuntu 17.04, maybe even more important.

No file tab update, after a while, no update on project panel either, project's compiler option empty, and when quitting, Save alert box often blank, making impossible to actually quit and needing to kill Code::Blocks

A compiled binary for Ubuntu for rev 11146/47 would be highly welcome, not to say more
