I've upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 Beta-2 (and thank you, Parallels, for adding compatibility even before it is officially released -- VMware could never be bothered to make their stuff compatible with the new version of an OS until a couple months *after* it was released, and on Ubuntu's six-month upgrade cycle, that's just ridiculous).
Anyway, the "flicker" problem is either gone or at least a *lot* less common now. I might have seen it happen once, in the several days that I used 12.04 a few weeks ago (had to go back to an 11.10 VM until Parallels was updated, just returned to 12.04 last night after discovering the latest Parallels upgrade). I used to see it happen regularly when sending e-mail, but I've been sending mail all morning, and it's been completely solid. :-D

A week now, and still not a single instance. I think we can count this as fixed. :-)

I worked with your problem but I can't reproduce it still. Even your VM didn't help me to see the problem with Screen flashes.
So, I hope you're still ready to help with the fix of this inconvenient behavior from Parallels Desktop when you run Ubuntu with Gnome shell.
Please, do the following steps:
the next time, when you start to work inside your Linux VM make a video with some steps of reproduction of such a behavior. And it is very important for us to see how does screen flash.
Please, send me a video here: http://fe.parallels.com/instructions...266ee08c9b0234
Thank you for help

I'm no longer using Gnome 3.2, I have not experienced the issue with 3.4. I have not had any issues with ubuntu 12.04 so far, great job to everyone on getting that available so quickly.

I am using Parallels Desktop 8 with the latest update and Fedora 18 32Bit. After installing the Parallels Tools I got this problem, too. :-/
