And in addition to the very good advice above, my observation is that there's a point where you have to say "this is as good as it gets." Cinematographers simply can't adjust aperture in the middle of a shot. And if they do, then it's up to the editor to be smart enough to just use a different take where this didn't happen. Otherwise, just smooth it out as best as humanly possible.

Non-linear changes like this tend to affect different parts of the frame in unpredictable ways, as you've discovered. I've worked for an hour on (say) a 9- or 10-frame sequence in trying to smooth out an exposure bump, and typically all I can do is just make it better... not undetectable. If it's to the point where it's 75% or 80% better than it was originally, the filmmakers are just going to have to live with it or come up with different coverage.
