Well for LCD it does make sense yes.  They don't flicker in the first
place at any speed.

Switching back to the older kernel doesn't help either. I don't think there's a problem with anything but the nvidia driver, since:

The nvidia driver has a tendancy to take the DDC data as above all.  The
README file for the nvidia driver in /usr/share/doc/nvidia-glx/ should
say how you can force it to ignore DDC data.

Probably upgraded nvidia driver changed things.
