No screenshots, fifologs, or ways to reproduce quickly (wii save + real instructions). Saying "start the game and play" without any other explanation is not sufficient. Please provide those.

The double image in the screanshot flickers on and off much like the black squares on the ground in the fifo log.

This issue has really strange behaviour, but it reacts on Fast Deth option for a while:
Stepm into the water than turn FastDepth ON, water will be rendered correctly until character moves and water will be buggy again, than you can turn the option OFF and the cycle will repeat itself
look's like FastDepth option triggers smth

This issue is still present on the latest build of Dolphin (6215-x64). It happens regardless of video backend, internal resolution, or any graphics settings (including Virtual or Real XFB). While unofficial builds are unsupported, it may be helpful to know that this issue also occurs on the latest build of Ishiiruka (353.6c16034), also regardless of any and all video settings.
I believe issue 1899 is a similar (or identical) issue to this one. It has, however, been marked as fixed, which is obviously not true. I don't see any indication of the build that the issue was "fixed" in, however it must have been broken some time afterwards, given that the issue is about 3 years old and the issue is still present.
What can we do to help narrow down the cause of this bug?

Thought I would give this game a shot because of all the changes to depth and fast depth recently and the comment from January I had missed. As of 6496 things are still broken. Toggling fast depth only seems to work once for me. Does it rebuild the shader cache the first time its toggled? The game slows from 30fps to about 5 for a few seconds the first time I toggle the setting. While its slowing down I can even move and the water looks normal. After the first toggle of the setting it doesn't seem to make a difference.
