This is fixable, and it will get fixed soon.

Hm, maybe I didn't look at newsgroups that took many seconds. In fact,
I've seen similar behavior (but not generated by WM_SETREDRAW, the
app itself would invalidate the entire window from outside), in other
apps (e.g. All-SeeingEye:

I think the native does double buffering to avoid that flicker. I will
eventually add that too, but I want to make sure, before I do, that
we do have the most optimal invalidating/painting code that's possible.
Once we're satisfied with that, I'll try to eliminate the rest of the
flicker by rendering to an off-screen buffer.

I did this in the Trackbar control, and it works quite well.
