I'm seeing the same thing, but only with one configuration (I'm using several slightly different configurations of ZTreeWin). Now that I think of it, the problem usually occurs with a configuration I routinely use on my second monitor.

I haven't been able to test all the differences between the configurations, and won't have time for the next month, but I will try running that same configuration on the primary monitor only.

The problem never appears to occur on my (single-screen) home laptop.

So perhaps it's related to use on a non-primary monitor.

I'm guessing this is related to the way the console host was updated so that text in a command-line window is automatically 're-flowed' when the screen size changes. But I'm not sure as to the specifics involved, or how the interaction between ZTreeWin and the console host triggers this behaviour.
