Thank you, I solved the problem, and I think it's a generalisable trick if you know exactly how to compute the future size of the stack (perhaps a rare situation, but it's my case, the stack has only few possible sizes):
1) compute the future size of your stack
2) lock screen
3) compute the future size and position of every objet in the card
4) set their size and position. They will perhaps be outside the present window, but it's not a problem since the screen is locked.
5) only after that, set the new stack size.
Works perfectly well (almost) without a flick !
