As you are using your machine for development, you will have set IE not to
cache stuff but to check for new content every visit to the page. This
means it is re-fetching the image every time.
To see it as a normal user would, got to Tools > Internet Options >
General tab > Temporary Internet Files fieldset > Settings button, select
the "Automatically" radio button and OK all the way back out. After you
reload the page the flicker should have vanished.
This is mentioned in the notes to Sliding Doors 2, BTW:
