It makes the transition feel slower, and that flash is faster than we are.  Also kinda ugly.

It either has to appear a little early or a little late with the current setup. It should be arriving late on Windows though, so we should look into that.

Post-FF4 we can reduce the delay more when we reorganize things to make all painting happen through the refresh driver.
