IIRC, ipdf used a little trick to make the page turns faster: the rendered page is put directly in the linux framebuffer, bypassing X (oh, and it's also put in it's X window, so if you refresh the screen the correct page is viewed). I'm not totally sure if is is the case with current ipdf, but as it would explain this problem, I would vote for it.

Beaver is using the "typing" style of updates, not the full updates, nope? (if it's using the full updates, the previous explanation would not be correct...).
