I think this is the flickering regression that we expected to come back
when we reverted the two-step watermarks.  Resurrecting a much earlier
workaround that we lost should help prevent the user-visible problems in
the short term; I just sent a patch for that.

I'm traveling, so I haven't seen any IRC discussion that may have
happened recently, but I believe the CI regression we saw on that final
two-step watermark patch are still unsolved.  But since we've already
reverted that patch, they shouldn't be blocking anything, right?
