MacFixIt has been receiving reports about excessive sensitivity in automatic screen brightness feature of 2005 PowerBook G4s after installing Mac OS 10.3.8.

Yesterday we noted a reader report of apparent increased sensitivity in OS X’s automatic screen brightness feature — enabled via the “Automatically adjust brightness as ambient light changes” option in newer PowerBooks’ Displays preferences — since installing OS X 10.3.8. We’ve since received a significant number similar reports confirming this issue. Many readers report the issue is so bad that their screen “flickers.”
