Maybe I should get more involved in developpement again...
But it seems to me that this flicking BigNum problem is already and old
And the solution was already given on the mailing list.
I might be wrong because my memory fail frequently. ;-)

But why those change are not introduce and a v0.4-pre10 created.
I am quite sure a lot of patch, not applyed, do exist.
I am thinking about I2C for MatrixOrbital, LIRC 2nd incarnation, IRMAN
native support(?), ...

Cause is a problem with the framebuffer usage. Big Numbers and
the framebuffer do not mix. What happens is that the LCD displays
the big numbers and right afterwards the current framebuffer is
drawn. Since its empty, it erases the LCD.

Solution is simple: Implement big numbers using the framebuffer.
I attached the two modified functions which need to be replaced
in server/drivers/MtxOrb.c. The numbers look a bit different,
personally I prefer them.
