I noticed what you are referring to. Another option for the time being is to adjust the window size by dragging one of the corners to make the window a little smaller (or bigger). The resize seems to force it to redraw itself.

When you say the first time it is launched, do you mean the first time after you have dragged it to the /Applications folder, the first time after you have rebooted your system?

In the README file there is a note about it taking some time to load the first time after it has been run (usually after being dragged to the /Applications folder). If it is happening under other circumstances I need to know.

When you say it opens blank, does the main screen come up with nothing in it, or does no window show up?

GNU GUI very often opens blank when launched. (double clicked)
Closing GNUBG (but not X11) and reopening GNUBG always solves the problem.

Bug occurs in OSX Lion through to Mavericks
X11 is up to date - XQuartz 2.7.5 (xorg-server 1.14.4)

Bug occurs in GNUBG release 0.90.0 and 1.02 (only 2 I have)

Bug still occurs if I run X11 first and then GNUBG

Bug only occurs on first launch of X11/GNU but pretty much every first launch

confirmed as a bug by 2 other MAC users
