Did you ever get an answer to this Phil?  I routinely enable the
alwaysBuffer of ALL stacks, all the time, and have yet to encounter any
flicker.  More often than not, any flicker that folks observe in stacks is
usually caused by an alwaysBuffer setting of false.  Are you seeing
something different?
