Other terms don't do flushing even at update_end, let alone at the end
of each one-shot drawing operation (you may see XFlush calls in the
code but they are mostly defined as no-ops).  IIUC, flushing happens
only by explicit flush_display(_optional) RIF calls or at the timing
of polling/receiving window system events (e.g., XPending on X11, and
ReceiveNextEvent on Carbon) implicitly.
