This bug totally looks like lp bug #331564 , but according to its discussion, problem should be fixed.
In my case, although "Fading Windows" Compiz plugin are enabled, and "Fade windows" option set to "any & !(title=notify-osd)" (as by default), notify-osd notifications flickering always, each time when it appears.
The only workaround [in my case] (I've tried to "play" with other settings of this plugin, such as "Fade On Minimize/Open/Close", but it won't help) - to disable plugin itself, but then user lose a set of pretty really useful features, such as freezing windows on unresponsive state).
