I've tried to reproduce the problem and for me it's more a refresh issue
in st, it happens to me also when, with ranger, I try to preview images.

In fact, for me, it's not a blinking but a flashing behavior (sorry I
know they are synonyms).

Can you confirm?

If it's the case I don't know how to help either.
