The i3 binary you just called: /usr/bin/i3
The i3 binary you are running: i3

URL to a logfile as per https://i3wm.org/docs/debugging.html:

let me know if you want this.

What I did:

Simple case:
Use gedit on a 'layout' (regular) monitor (For some reason I don't see this happening for a portrait (long) monitor config). Or maybe this is monitor dependent, vsync issues?
this is my file:
https://pastebin.com/vzF45eGn

Complex setup case:
grab Eclipse, edit a file in a project

What I saw:

Simple case: All or some of the text blinks when the cursor blinks. Sometimes this doesn't happen, sometimes it does, I have to toggle fullscreen sometimes. Sometimes all text blink, sometimes just the text after my cursor blinks. it helps to have the cursor towards the end of the file.

Complex setup case:
Edit a file. Check out this video:

What I expected instead:

No text blinking when cursor blinks. Eclipse not going crazy.

Eclipse calms down then I use gtk2, so I wonder if this is a gtk3 issues?

I don’t see a link to logs.i3wm.org. Did you follow https://i3wm.org/docs/debugging.html? (In case you actually provided a link to a logfile, please ignore me.)

I am going to close this because this is regarding something happening inside the client window; i3 is not involved or responsible for drawing client window contents.

Most likely this is an issue with compositing, video driver or vsync. I'd suggest running a compositor if you don't already or play with its settings otherwise. A good standalone compositor to try is compton.

I tried compton with the following settings:

it looks like gedit is not behaving well, but eclipse is still going crazy. huh.
