Photoshop 21.2: Distracting Taskbar 'Flickering' in Windows 10

I work with floating windows in Photoshop on windows 10, which means each open file has its own tab on the taskbar.

In 21.2, making a brushstroke while painting causes the active tab to flick from Photoshop to the open file and back again each time the stylus does anything. This is extremely visually distracting. It can be temporarily stopped by switching to another program and back to photoshop again.

Nevermind. I see the behavior with both. Thanks. I'll ask engineers to take a look.
