Yes, you're right, it only happens in "Prioritize Viewfinder" mode, not in "Monitor Only" mode. However, I can hold the camera at arm's length from my body and it still happens 100% of the time as described in the original post. However, I have discovered that if I turn on "Focus Point" in the Playback settings (so that the red Focus Point is displayed in playback), it never happens. That makes me think it's more likely to be some kind of software bug rather than an issue with my specific camera.

I have seen it too occasionally in situations as described. It looks like an LCD refresh software bug: the screen is cleared and redrawn as you pan around. You should not see that it gets cleared (black) and redrawn.
