Ok, I've reported the bug here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=788367
Anything I can improve in the report or add more information?

I wonder if there will be a replacement for GtkSocket and GtkPlug in Gtk4.

This was my very first assumption as well. I tried many things actually before posting on the gtk-list. But I have not found a workaround. I've also created my own double buffering by drawing into an offscreen image and afterwards painting it. But even painting this single image resulted in flickering, at least less often.
