Most Macintosh screen savers don't save the screen, but scribble over it
and then request the application to redraw (refresh it) when the screen
saver is done.

Dynamic windows know how to refresh themselves when requested.  If you
can't easily change your window flavor to a dynamic window, you'll need
to add a method to do the refreshing yourself.  I forget whether :refresh,
refresh-rectangle, or something else is the operation.
