         Discussion Lock: Any
        Operating System: GNU/Linux
         Planned Release: 



When the turn changes and the AI does its thing, the resulting flurry of
updates can take so long for the client to draw that some component of my OS
(Ubuntu) decides that the application is "not responding" and fades it to
grey. Once the AI is finished, the window is regarded as responding and
becomes colourful again. This tends to happen if I have shared vision with an
AI, or am observing one.

This is annoying, as it's harder to tell what's going on without colour
information. The window is still animating perfectly fine; it's just
presumably not responding to some "ping" from the OS.

It would be nice if this could be avoided (even if the user still can't
usefully interact with the client during AI updates).
