This is because the RadHtmlPlaceHolder is hidden when the RadWindow is dragged, because of performance issues. However, the drag starts on mouse down on the header of the RadWindow, and even though it is not movable, the base class is not aware of this and that is why the RadHtmlPlaceHolder flashes (it goes hidden).
Sorry for the caused inconvenience.
