Sometimes the hallucinations include seeing alternate versions of their own ship, with the other crew usually unaware of their presence... but occasionally reacting to them.
Niven's Known Space had a similarly unsettling response to hyperspace, IIRC--only if you looked at it, you saw nothing. That is, your visual cortex in the brain shut down, and you got "trapped" until someone came along and moved you so some "normal" space was in your visual field, and you could see again.

She added the "h", IIRC, at her editor's suggestion, because in those days female science fiction authors were not the thing--and one named ""Cherry" would have been the kiss of death. Hence also going by her initials CJ to disguise her gender.

Leigh Bracket had the advantage of a first name not obviously female--but "Carolyn Janice Cherry" was a give-away. Wikipedia:
"Cherryh (pronounced 'Cherry') appended a silent 'h' to her real name because her first editor, Donald A. Wollheim, felt that 'Cherry' sounded too much like a romance writer. She used only her initials, C.J., to disguise that she was female at a time when the majority of science fiction authors were male."

Another take on "Jump dimming" is similar to modern air-conditioned autos: when the accelerator is pushed, the air conditioning is cut out for a few minutes to give more power for accelerating the car. Most often, the cut out is so brief that the cooling is basically not affected.
