buttons in a layer flicker black when my mouse moves across them

I have a layer that contains 4 interactive buttons. When I move my mouse
over them they're supposed to highlight (which they are). But they also
completely flicker black for just a split second. This happens every time I
move my mouse across them. They should highlight which they are. But they
shouldn't flicker black. I've checked the behavior properties of the layer
and there's nothing I can see that would cause them to flicker. Any
suggestions would really help!

A couple of ideas 1) does this happen when you view the site from another
PC? 2) do you have the most recent drivers for your graphics card?

I met a similar problem and spent many hours on it. As far as I can
tell the only sure way to avoid the "flicker" is to design your buttons
with a bitmap and have it swap to a different bitmap (same size) when
mouse is over. Can people with more experience then me please confirm
this?

It's called css flicker and it's usually caused by a setting in IE.

There's some good info here:

Scroll down to the part about "Double Buffering" for a cure.
