Ticket #1596 (closed defect: fixed)
drag-and-drop file causes screen flicker

Using sugar-jhbuild on Fedora, also reproduced on Sugar-0.84: dragging and dropping a file from a USB disk onto the Journal icon on the bottom left will cause a screen flash, while the progress bar is displayed and the whole view is refreshed.
There is no need for a refresh in this case. I think it is happening because the datastore is sending a signal that there is a new file in the Journal, and the Journal is not considering the fact it's not displaying the datastore contents before refreshing the screen.
