Has anyone else out there noticed a screen flicker situation with Mma Ver 3.0?

I've checked Mma on the following systems:

Windows NT
PowerMac 8100, System 7.5.5,
PowerBook 540c, System 7.5

I notice that when I type in a new command and execute, the whole screen
refreshes.  This behavior looks like a screen flicker.  I find this
behavior quite distracting especially since I don't remember it happening
with Ver 2.2.

Has anyone got an opinion or more information on this behavior?  Is this a
general characteristic of Ver 3?  Has it always happened with all versions
of Mma and I just did not notice?
