I suspect that the IR emitter emits pulses of a certain pattern, and the internal firmware is programmed to respond to pulses of that pattern from the IR sensor. If the sensor responded to continuous IR, the EVF would be on all of the time in sunlight, which would waste the battery. I suspect that, as with sunlight, the camera recognized the continuous IR from your incandescent flashlight bulb and switched the EVF off. Just my guess.
