@ale, please try this:

win = Scripter.activeWindow
win.redraw = True

This will set the redraw to True.

i've created a text frame in a document and i'm running in the script editor the following code:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from __future__ import with_statement
import time

Scripter.activeWindow.redraw = True
item = Scripter.activeDocument.items[0]
item.text = "abc"
item.text = "def"

i never see "abc"... so i think that redraw is always false, while running a script...
most of the time not a big issue... but can be disturbing in some case (as an example if you make some changes to a document and then pop up an export to pdf dialog: you would like to show the updated document in the backgroun...)
