>  (gdb) break update_frame_1
>  (gdb) commands

>> p inhibit_id_p
>> continue
>> end

> If update_frame_1 indeed gets called at high frequency when the xterm
> frame flickers, then please do the same when Emacs is started with -nw

Output with 'emacs -Q':

Output with 'emacs -Q' was more frequent, whereas output with 'emacs -Q -nw'
only printed when I pressed some key into the 'emacsclient' xterm window.
