  Strange Brightness Key Behavior

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This report is for Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 2 installed cleanly on a Dell
  Latitude D620 with Intel integrated 950 graphics. After the screen
  blanks after inactivity, pressing the Fn-Brightness up key makes the
  brightness go up, but in a "staggered" way instead of one step at a
  time. If starting from a blank screen of zero brightness, then here is
  how it goes:

  First press: level 3
  Second press: level 1
  Third press: level 4
  Fourth press: level 2
  Fifth press: level 5
  Sixth press: level 3

  And so on until it reaches maximum brightness. I am inclined to think
  it is more of a Gnome 3 issue as opposed to Ubuntu specific becuase
  the brightness keys work fine in 11.04.
