Preview window not smooth, 'jumps' around the screen

Bug Description

Expected behaviour: to have the preview appear the same clean, smooth way it disappears.

Actual behaviour: Instead of appearing cleanly (with a nice animation) in the centre of the screen, with the appropriate size already set, the preview window appears in a small, non-centred black window, and then jumps again to its final size and position. It feels like it "jumps around" the screen, like a glitch or graphical error.

I've been seeing this behaviour of Gnome Sushi for years, in different distributions and DEs. It did so in Ubuntu with Unity, and does so in Arch with Gnome Shell. It ruins the experience and the whole point of this app.

It is reported there too:

Jeremy, is Canonical by any chance contributing code/bug fixes to Gnome and other upstream projects these days?
