Looks like a mess in the brightness system. One can shift up and down the brightness normaly using the keyboard keys. But when using the system control in gnome system settngs, the shift is not gradual, it jumps from total darkness to to very bright at any part of the scroll control. Also, using the option "lower the brightness to save energy" (sorry for the bad english, I'm native spanish) the screen gets brighter instead of darker
What kernel did you see this with and does the 3.2.7 or newer update help the issue?
