Comment 64 for bug 1574278

Thanks for the offer. Sorry, I don't have a backport of my patch for
abiword 3.0.1, and haven't estimated the effort. Would you consider
moving Xenial to abiword 3.0.2?

At One Laptop per Child for our derivative build of Ubuntu with the
Sugar desktop, we've worked around the flickering by setting
GTK_THEME to adwaita in the package sugar-write-activity. This
perturbs the timing just enough to prevent the problem on our
supported hardware.

For our upcoming Bionic build, the abiword 3.0.2-6 package doesn't
show the problem.
