When local results are slower to arrive (because they have a low frecency) we still flicker, because stale rows are removed on the timer (we don't want them to stay there a too long time, because they don't apply to the current string).
We can increase this timer a bit to further reduce flicker, though we don't have a clear way to measure success here. Telemetry tells us in 200ms we can serve the first 6 results in 95% of the cases, but we have 10 results and some timing is unpredictable (network, disk latency). We can just make a guess for now and look around for feedback.

Try to further reduce flicker by increasing the time we keep stale results visible.
