This is the lens gizmo used to manipulate the camera FOV [which seems to stay active on the active object (while the camera is deselected it is still active)]

Seems to be true for all object gizmos [light, wind force, ...]
@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) , @William Reynish (billreynish) : this is by design, right? Or should the gizmo only be active if the object is both active and selected?

Currently those gizmos don't require the object to be selected first. However, perhaps that could make sense in some cases.

In any case, this FOV gizmo should not be flickering like this - it does make it seem unstable or like a bug.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) I guess we need to make the FOV gizmo always draw on top of the rest of the camera?

Currently we don't have a simple way to make the gizmo draw on-top of the camera, without it drawing on-top of everything else.

Since there are likely other cases where we will run into this we could use a shader that applies a dept bias.
