Not sure what you mean by flickering, but with my radeon I have noticed
(much more often on FC6 test than FC5) that it sometimes acts like the dpms
monitor shut-down stuff gets triggered randomly every few seconds. It will
go through a really bad time, then it will stop happening for a while. Video
just keeps turning on and off. If I reboot enough, I'll eventually get
to a state where it no longer does it (until the next time I reboot :-).
