They typical flickering that is seen occurs when markup on the page is 
upgraded to a dojo widget (the orignal src node is replaced with more 
complex markup from the widget/widget template).  Generally people solve 
this issue by setting display: none on the markup and letting the widget 
show it when ready.  Its not clear to me if that is the case here.
