Default [Q] Black screen and wallpaper pop-in when exiting apps to the homescreen

This issue is a little hard to explain in greater detail than the title states. Happens quite a lot lately when closing an app. Basically after exiting to the homescreen via the home button I'm faced with a second or so of a black screen then the wallpaper and app icons just pop onscreen. Very annoying. Does anyone here know why this may be happening or what possibly might be causing it? I'm rooted pretty much stock with the Franco Kernel and xposed and only a few xposed modules.

Stock home-launcher? Or custom one? If so it might be custom home launcher issue,or maybe xposed module issue.

Is it a launcher redraw, like what happens when the phone is out of memory? Or is what you described something else?

It's actually Nova Launcher. Do you think a launcher can cause something along the lines I (tried to) described?

I guess that sounds about right. Just now went in to Nova's advanced menu and an option was there for aggressive desktop which did mention about redraws and such. I checked it so I'll have to play around a bit to see if it'll make a difference. Thanks for mentioning it.

I've seen the same thing after playing a game on stock. Think it is the aggressive memory management in 4.4
