Changing background doesn't automatically refresh the window. You have to modify something else in the page to have the window refreshed
Summary: browser window refreshing → When document.body.bgColor changed twice in a row, not reflected on screen immediately
It seems this only occurs when you update the bgColor (of the document.body) element, twice in a row. The second update isn't painted to the screen imediately but some outside action (or other DOM update) is needed to refresh it. Then when there is additional stuff on the screen the color updates are done in patches.
As Daryl pointed out, bug 1886 seems to be related to this one.
