Roan, you said you'd written a patch for this so I assigned it to you. It would be great to fix this. Users are giving us a lot of grief for our "jumpy" display.

Stephane merged my patch yesterday, but strangely the bot didn't report that here.

Checked in betalabs - the fix is in place. The issue with "The "[collapse] link disappears then reappears" is reported in T177117: Page elements still jumping around and blinking on RC page and Watchlist.

QA Recommendation: Resolve

This is opening and closing again. Annoying!

Re-closing. The fix for this rolls out to the Wikipedias with the train in a few hours. On e.g. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:RecentChanges it does work.
