bug of xamarin studio when screen flickers.

1) Open two files next to each other in Xamarin Studio.
2) Do a global search for something that will come up with results.
3) Now click to text editor in one of the files.
4) Click to the other window.
Observe that the screen flickers (feels like it's being completely reloaded). This brings a lot of distraction, uncomfortable work when being in Xamarin Studio.

Please see the attachment for detailed information.
