There is no flickering.  The artefacts are permanent.

It can work just fine.  Something triggers the issue.  After triggering,
scrolling or resizing windows of the affected frame usually make the
artefacts disappear again and highlighting works just fine.

The window configuration of my recipe is important, too.  Using just one
rms2 window makes it impossible to reproduce this issue here.

I do not think updating a window once a second is unreasonable.  I have
never seen this issue with 24.3.
