Doesn't the latest GDB compile on macOS?  I thought it did, but
perhaps that's only available in the GDB Git repo.

You can, of course, manually type the equivalents of the commands that
GDB uses in pgrowx.

In an Emacs configured with --enable-checking=yes,glyphs, you can also
use the dump-glyph-row command to the same effect.

The Y coordinate is measured from the top of the window.

So the problem is with redrawing the cursor in a screen line that
shows a tall image?  Is there any text before and/or after the image
in the same screen line?

If you want to reproduce the flickering, you need to do whatever
causes redisplay after opening the file.  For example, does it flicker
when you move cursor?  Does cursor blinking cause flickering?  Each
one of these should show you the output that tells which parts of the
glyph row is Emacs actually redrawing.
