     I want to have a pane not get redisplayed after each command: the
     contents are buttons and never change.

     the book says that :redisplay-after-commands () will accomplish this,
     but it seems to have no effect.

     is this a bug or is there a secret other trick to it?

   Check out the documentation of the keyword :DISPLAY-TIME.
   I think you want :DISPLAY-TIME T.  That displays once, at
   frame creation time.  :DISPLAY-TIME NIL will suppress pane display
   altogether.  There are a couple of other choices as well.

   I think that :redisplay-after-commands is old and probably
   not supported anymore.

silly me. I read the book exactly backwards, somehow. thanks.
