External display flickers when plugged into X61 ultrabase

I have the X61 and the ultrabase.  I have not updated the drivers for the video since I purchased this back in March/April.  Over the past month or two my external monitor (Viewsonic 17" LCD) now flickers often.  Not contantly.  Just every few minutes a flicker here, a flicker there.

 

When I plug the monitor into the video port on the side of the unit rather than the ultrabase, it seems to work fine.  Lenovo and I thought it might be the ultrabase so they just sent me a new ultrabase, but it is still doing the same thing.  What else can I check.

Unfortunately, No.  It still persists.

 

We thought it must be the base station however Lenovo has sent a new one and it still happens.

I've noticed that it happens on my screen only when AC adapter is connected to the docking station, when I unplug the power cable from the Ultrabase the screen stops flickering - is it the same for you?

I'm experiencing the very same problem with a Viewsonic VA712b monitor.  Now you have me thinking its an incompatibility with the monitor.  I'll swap it over the weekend and report back.
