Default flickering with freebsd and 1.0-6113

i have an Acer Aspire 1703SM running freebsd 5.3RELEASE with an nvidia GeForceFX 5600 Go.
This is what i get from a sysctl -a command:

hw.nvidia.version: NVIDIA FreeBSD x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-6113 Mon Aug 2 16:08:32 PDT 2004
hw.nvidia.registry.EnableVia4x: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.EnableALiAGP: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.NvAGP: 1
hw.nvidia.registry.EnableAGPSBA: 0

hw.nvidia.registry.SoftEDIDs: 1
hw.nvidia.registry.Mobile: 4294967295
hw.nvidia.registry.ResmanDebugLevel: 4294967295
hw.nvidia.registry.FlatPanelMode: 0 GeForce FX Go5600 16 AGP
dev.nvidia.0.%desc: GeForce FX Go5600
dev.nvidia.0.%driver: nvidia
dev.nvidia.0.%location: slot=0 function=0
dev.nvidia.0.%pnpinfo: vendor=0x10de device=0x031a subvendor=0x1025 subdevice=0x0028 class=0x030000
dev.nvidia.0.%parent: pci1

The problem is that sometimes images on lcd flick randomly.
Frequency is very low but it's annoying anyway.
I don't experience this behaviour with winxp.

My question is: may this 'bug' lead to some sort of hardware problems?
I mean.. some days ago i had a serius problem with my lcd and i have to change the lcd inverter.
At the time i was using the previous release of freebsd driver, 1.0-6111 and the flickering was more frequent.

Thanks in advance
