Well, for a user point of view, this *is* the solution.

What *I* call flashing box effect is the grow/shrink effect of
progress bars when , for instance, d-i modules are fetched then
loaded. The box flashes as it always adapts to 1-line/2-line
text...depending on the string length.

If your patch freeezes the dialog box size when it grows up to, say, 2
lines, and then forbids it to shrink down when 1 line is enough, then
your patch does the work.
