Do you care whether you get the OSD popup when you manually adjust the
brightness? If not, you could see if there's a way to disable it
entirely. I did a little bit of searching and couldn't find a way to do
so, but perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I is aware of such a means.
I did, however, run across a forum post  in my search that dealt with
a similar issue (osd popping up at random) - perhaps one of the
solutions proposed there will be of assistance.
