Flicker before Interface SlideIn* functions

Description

I have seen several posts on the forums that claim that something like this was fixed in jQuery 1.1.2, but this persists for me in Firefox 1.5 on Windows XP. In certain situations, the sliding element is made visible for a brief period before the slide actually starts, when display is unset or set to "block", and visibility is "none"

My preliminary fix is as follows:

comment out ifxslide.js, line 240 (jQuery.fx.slide method):

z.el.show();

and change ifx.js, line 110 (jQuery.fx.buildWrapper method) from:

t.hide();

to

es.display = "none";

I'm not sure what the reason was for having the z.el.show() command, but it seems to work well without it. Also, under the conditions I described above, the t.hide() call doesn't actually do anything when z.el.show() is commented, because hide() does a filter(":visible") before doing its thing, and the element's visibility is set to none.

Any insight on whether this fix breaks anything else is appreciated. Also, I will put up a test case and post it here soon.

I am unable to attach a file with a test case... I'm kind of new at this, and I'm not sure why.

This test case still flickers for me.

Sorry, I wasn't clear: the test case demonstrates the flicker, and does not include the fix I outlined.

This happens in jquery 1.1.3 in a number of cases in IE. Any animation (hide/show, fadeIn/fadeOut, slideUp/slideDown) seems to flicker before it then works normally. No idea why :)

Interface is no longer supported; consider switching to  jQuery UI.
