Thanatermesis assigned this task to raster.
Thanatermesis updated the task description. (Show Details)

updated, much simpler description and easier to reproduce

There is another point in:
If you create a new shelf and solely add the pager to that it will set itself better than as to desktop or as a desktop overlay.
Resizing the pager to a larger up to maximum size makes it flicker (but not with all sizes) i.e renders it useless.

Ah! I have seen that crazy "shaking" effect too, but I removed it from the report (this one or other similar) because I was unable to reproduce it

The pager in the bar starts "shaking" the moment you create multiple horizontal rows of VirtualDesktops.
I suspect it's a size issue too i.e they wont fit within the constraints of the ibar size setting.
