Sublime Text UI not always refreshing


I’m using PopOS 20.10, which is a modified version of Ubuntu 20.10, in a VM. After upgrading from 20.04 to 20.10 Sublime is now failing to update the UI randomly when I change files. This has never happened before, and I’ve tried reinstalling version 3 and also tried the latest 4094 build, but still have the same issue.

I don’t know if I can post a screen recording here, but I can recreate the problem by opening a bunch of tabs, and then cycling through them while selecting random text on each tab. After a few seconds the contents of the tab will freeze and I won’t be able to select text or to type any changes. However the updates are still happening, because if I click away from the tab and come back I can see the changes that were made while the UI was frozen.

Ah thank you, couldn’t find this on my own.
