Thoce existing display update architecture is complex. There is reliance on redoLayout() in some places and update() in others. As working this results in some race condition display bugs.

We should eliminate the complexity of the display update() mechanism such that we can get rid of redoLayout(). The update() method can decide exactly what needs updating. API users make all the changes they want and then finally call update().

(In [4446]) Refactor away ImageDisplay.redoWindowLayout method

The method still exists internally as rebuild() but is called
automatically as needed from update() instead.

This closes #828.
