[It looks like my recent post regarding this matter was not slipped into
this thread nicely (at least on the archives).]
Here is some explanation / archaeology about the "flashing" and the reason
for moving widgets offscreen instead of hide / show:

Maybe the reason 1x1 resizing works as an alternative hide/show method is
related to the reason moving things offscreen worked -- z-order is
Possible explanation: perhaps when you hide/show there is a transparent
widget layered above the button widgets, so "the UI doesn't work".
Then again, maybe this issue and the 1x1 workaround is something completely
unrelated to problems from years ago. Or maybe I tried 1x1 years ago too
