Binary package hint: kwin

After yesterday's upgrade in Intrepid, the whole KDE desktop is
flickering - vertical lines very briefly show up on the screen about
every 10 seconds, which makes desktop usage really distracting. The
flickering effect is hard to describe, but it occurs on the whole screen
and only when running KDE 4. I'm using the open source radeonhd driver
with Radeon HD 3850. I tagged the bug to be in kwin, but it might as
well be in libplasma2 or kdebase or in any other package that provides
KDE 4 basic technologies.
