As the mouse cursor hovers over the UI for the formula editor (not checked for other UIs) the images flicker. The flickering is stronger further down the interface (no flickering for first item), looking like an overzealous redraw. It seems to clearing the GUI and begin writing the new draw to the screen before the whole GUI is rendered.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice
(5.1.6 or 5.2.3 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave
a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

The flickering was already there when this feature was added in 4.1, so adding implementationError keyword.
The commit where the flickering became worse is:

This commmit brought forth other bugs as well (but it's not directly responsible for those), see bug 107166 or bug 108236.

The bibisect results aren't correct. The problem is older: see comment 1
Hoovering over the Formula dialog will flicker. Not always in the same extend, but it will eventually (depending on LibO version)
Also: still a repro with:

I can reproduce it also on Linux.
I did a bibisect:

You might be interested in this one. It has a timer/scheduler aspect; not sure if it's the root cause, though.

I pointed to 4.1 as the oldest version, see the exact sentence you quoted. I only checked on Windows, but the flickering is clearly there in 220.127.116.11.
