Photoshop 13.0.5 window dragging issue (OS X)

Hello everyone! I'm having one small issue abou this: when I drag an open document window partially off the screen, somehow like this:

then release it, and then drag back, the sides that have been hidden (outside the screen) won't redraw until I release mouse button:

Haven't noticed such behavior until 13.0.5 (upgraded directly from 13.0.1).
Thanks.

    Not saying I have any idea why that should change, but it might be helpful for the purpose of discussion if you'd show your Preferences - Performance, [Advanced Settings...] choices.

    You mentioned trying Normal and Advanced...  Did you try Basic?

     

    Make sure to quit/close Photoshop after making the change, then restarting before testing.

    What's your exact version of the OS, and what are the model and specs of your video card?

     

    The reason I ask is that I see the very same behavior in Photoshop 13.0.5 under OS X Lion 10.7.5, but then I know I have an underpowered video card with only 256 MB of VRAM, and Photoshop never fails to inform me so every time it launches.

     

    A video card upgrade with 1 GB of VRAM should be here by Tuesday or Wednesday.  I'll report back once I install it.

     

     

    EDITED to add 2nd and 3rd paragraphs.

    I guess it must bother you, but is it really worth worrying about?  How many critical editing decisions do you make while you're moving your document windows?

    Hello!

    I'm with Noel, anyways, you are expected to release your mouse button at some point; aren't you? ;-)

    Of course, it would be worrisome if it affected your document in any way.

    As I wrote above, I also see it under Lion:

     

    I see the very same behavior in Photoshop 13.0.5 under OS X Lion 10.7.5, but then I know I have an underpowered video card with only 256 MB of VRAM…  (new card with 1 GB of VRAM arriving this week).

     

    I do not see this non-issue in Photoshop CS4 11.0.2 under Tiger 10.4.11 on a G5 Quad, driven by a video card with 512 MB of VRAM.

     

    We still don't know how much VRAM your cards have, but at this point it doesn't seem to matter.

    There have been some reports of Photoshop sluggishness...  I wonder if maybe they've been making austerity measures in the Mac screen updates process to try to correct that.

    I wouldn't bet on it being normal, but at least one other Mac user has confirmed they're seeing it.  Adobe would have to answer to be sure.
