I don't know what's best to do, to ignore zillion of Telesto bugs, or to deprive him of reporting bugs or to endlessly spend time marking duplicates.

Not everything you assume to be a duplicate is actually a duplicate. Yes, I'm guilty of reporting some duplicates. Similar to you being guilty of marking non-duplicates as duplicates (or even at the wrong bug). And you miss out responses about that (I assume, because you never add yourself to a CC list)
And mystery how this can be a duplicated of a bug bibisected in different range
There a probably 2 or 3 issues on top of each other (so same type of symptoms, same area, different cause). Can't help it. Would love it where more simple; but this is simply not true.
And FWIW, I do think fade smooth is actually working (which also stated in bug 91456). So bug 91456 actually solved a long time ago (maybe reintroduced.. and maybe different issues on Linux side). But those are actually different bug; not that of the initial poster. So it looks to me that people are sadly hijacking bug 91456. So there issues snow under.. in a bug report where those issue don't belong.
FWIW: I do know Aron bibisected a flickering bug related to presentation mode somewhere between LibO 126.96.36.199 LibO 5.1. And I assumed it should be solved by buffering (Skia). However it also appeared at OpenGL some while later (which like closed; no OpenGL). And Skia uses OpenGL code paths (as far I'm aware).
@Aron, is it possible you reported as similar issue in the past ?
I did report this already apparently.. However I think I see 2 flashes here, but lets say it's a dupe of bug 122737
