Bug report #8402
Selecting/Activating a layer in the layer list causes canvas to redraw
|Affected QGIS version:||1.8.0||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows||Easy fix?:||No|

I'm using QGIS 1.8 from the OSGeo4W installer on Windows 7.
Everytime I highlight or select a layer in the layer list, the map canvas redraws.
This isn't a big deal when zoomed in, but if I zoom out - having the map redraw itself with lots of data or labels every time I highlight a layer is introducing delays to my workflows.
The option so far is to disable the rendering by unchecking "Render" near the bottom right of the QGIS user interface and then re-enabling it whenever needed.

I've been playing with it more and notice that it doesn't redraw when selecting a point layer.
It only seems to affect layers that contain polygons or lines.
I attached a screen capture to show what it looks like.
