Summary 05617: midnrun, jetwave, waveshrk, windheat and clones: Display 'blanks out' at even intervals.
Description Every so often the display completely blanks out (usually every 1.5 seconds or so) before redrawing the screen again. This is a regression from previous behaviour and enough to take notice, despite the IMPERFECT GRAPHICS flag. All this is most noticeable when actually running in a race.

I also noticed that the flickering happens less often when changing the network ID from 1...

(Although Jet Wave/Wave Shark isn't on the ZR107 hardware, it also expresses the same regression)
Steps To Reproduce 1) Load the game by choosing their respective ROM name

2) After initialization, observe the flickering that happens

3) Go into the test mode and change DIP setting of network ID. All 4 options have flickering, but ID 4 flickers less.
Additional Information Research showing that it starts happening 02/02/13 - 02/03/13 - initial suspects are r20676, r20687.
