task bar flicker occurs with Dropbox on Linux Lite

Explorer | Level 4

Hello,  clicking on the Dropbox icon on the taskbar on my linux lite distribution v4.6 produces a taks bar flicker and stops flickering when I click on the desktop. Anyone have a clue why this is happening? Peek 2019-10-20 09-19.gif

Yes I can confirm my OS is up to date to meet dropbox requirements.. Further, I've asked my OS support forum the same question (Linux Lite 4.6, bases on Ubuntu 18.04) and it seems to point to a bug in QT. Have a read on the Google link...

I can confirm this happening on 4.6
Also known issue via general Google search - https://forum.manjaro.org/t/flickering-panel-when-set-autohidden-on-click-notification-area-qt-icons...

I've messaged Sean Davis from XFCE in the hope he can get one of the Devs to look at this. Stay tuned.
