Yes the Nav Bar seems to be the culprit but turning it off is not an option. I rely on the nav bar.

i have also added this bug to the actual compare bug section, it might be more official place for it and might get recognized. its here

also if you shut off the navigation bar check mark it seems to work without the screen flicker.

When I compare two text files with Notepad++ 5.8.2 Compare Plugin on my Windows 7 64-bit system, the result is a repeated flashing screen.

The only way out is to force a system shutdown via Ctrl-Alt-Del. Even this is not easy, if you have any unsaved files.

It would seem that the fact my system is the 64-bit version of Windows 7 may be the significant circumstance here.

The symptom does not occur on the 32-bit version of Windows 7.
