Yes! That's it!
For completeness, during testing the fix I also noticed that
docking/undocking also triggered the problem.
Like 556261, I am using acpid 1.0.10-3. I followed the advise of the
upstream in 556261 which was to remove a few files, like
/etc/acpi/events/videobtn (and a few more).
Upon doing that and restarting acpid the flickering stopped and now my
system happily will go through a suspend/resume and dock/undock reliably.
