Still see this error with -rc5. But I guess this is very likely an
ACPI/BIOS error. I have an Acer 1810T (1410T in US of A) with BIOS
version 3302. Can someone with the same hardware but different (i.e.
newer BIOS version - version 3303) confirm this bug?
When the flickering occurs, switching VTs back and forth makes the
problem go away!
