Playback often hangs for about a half-second when scrolling

When playing a file, and the cursor reaches the end of the window, there is often a momentary hang (roughly between a quarter- and half-second) while the window is redrawn with the next portion of the waveform. I say “often” because it doesn’t necessarily happen every time.

I haven’t been able to find a setting that might affect this.

How might this be corrected?

What kind of screen do you have?
Make sure to use version 9.5.15
Possibly increase playback latency settings.

My monitor is 1920 x 1080, I am using 9.5.15, and I just raised the playback buffer setting from 16 (where it originally was) to 24. That seems to have solved it.
