Before trying with 3.7, to have a conclusive report, I tried to
reproduce on 3.2.
Sadly, I'm unable to reproduce the bug anymore on 3.2 kernel.
Last week, when I first reported on this bug ticket, the flickering
persisted both after a X server restart and a system restart. Only
when I performed a dpms cycle did it went away. Nevertheless, today
I'm unable to reproduce the flickering.
I have not installed or updated x-server packages since last week and
have not changed my video configuration, so I have no specific idea
about why I cannot reproduce anymore.
If in the future, I get the bug back, I will report here.
