Actually, you do, as soon as you'll pass over some amount of controls.

I have the editor here that reimplements the screenshot (it's Maya, btw) and
in worst situations contains approx. 4500 controls. And I'm still
unable to remove
flickering on switch - basically, the layout refresh.

If anybody can prototype something that works with big amount of controls - his
help would be enormous. Really.
