spring? like keep "flashing"? this is because as files are added fm2 has to
re-organise the regions and the code unrealizes and re-realizes them. it
doesn't keep the objects around as-is but is re-creating them as it's simply
easier to do this. it leads to the artifact you see though as the selection is
done via a signal and thus the signal gets re-emitted on realize if the icon is
marked as selected. this is more a matter for optimization that usability.
