I think this was a desired feature, to be able to see intermediate results while long scripts or functions are executing. I don't have a reference to back that up at the moment though, may be in the mailing list archives.

See also bug #39646, one of these could be considered a duplicate of the other.

currently it gets updated recursively for every function that gets called internally by the function actually called by the user.  that's a lot of overhead, for something that changes so rapidly you only see the workspace dock flashing.  it could wait, until either execution is finished or interrupted by a debug command.
