Text was entered and seemed fine, some 13K words over all. Then the whole document started to blink at about a once every 2 seconds rate. I tried deleting text from the end back towards the start of the document but removing eventually all the text and reentering some test text showed that the issue persists.

It's a bug that has existed since 2015.
