Thank you for testing.
Probably not fixed in 2.4.0, but I will check its quality.
Quite a few changes were made in the MacOS code path.
Currently only NEWT has a 'pause animation'
for certain operations when using an AnimatorControl.
But even on X11 NEWT resizing flickers,
as we don't stop rendering in general.
On MacOS using AWT the situation is a little bit more complex,
as OpenJDK uses offscreen compositing in a fancy way,
which does not really allow us to control the FBO.
From memory we even have to issue a compositing animator
to achieve rendering to VSYNC - that explains that issue as well.
Bottom line: On MacOS using AWT is no more onscreen direct rendering.
Only NewtCanvasAWT guarantees direct onscreen rendering for all platforms.
In don't know which TextRenderer you are referring to.
I only support the Graph based text rendering from here on,
others are welcome to refactor the old AWT based text renderer
to make it AWT agnostic.
