This particular one is an old hand; I don't have current hand history on this computer so I'm not sure about the opponents. It's one of those things that stick in the back of your mind over time and gets remembered when you face the situation again, but then never get around to investigating it.
I've been check-folding in this situation in general unless it gets minbet, but I suspect this is where I used to be winning from the SB/BB, by taking little stabs at little pots OOP when I caught parts of the flop. Here it's complicated a bit by so many in the flop and the flush draw, but if you win more than 1 time out of 2 with 1/2 pot bet, AND, shut down if raised/called, it should be +EV.
Sorry, I seem to be talking myself into answering my own question, so why didn't I figure that out for myself. But it helps to have some outside perspective/opinion.
