MBA 2013 displays flicker using PS

I assisted a friend installing Photoshop CS6 on her MBA 2013 (13"/i7/8/256).

While trying it out, the display starts to flicker - vehemently.

Turns out several other MBA owners (2013 only) have the same issue (Apple discussions, Adobe forums, Adobe forums #2, Adobe forums #3).

Basically Apple says it's an Adobe issue, Adobe returns the issue to Apple.

Changing the resolution to second highest solves the issue, and some users have reported that upgrading to Mavericks also solves the issue.

So - what do you think of this?

A few members have been complaining about PS flickering.

Maybe it's time to merge the threads?

This did unfortunately not solve the problem.

This appears to be happening on other Photosohp versions even CS 4. I have the new CC and it does the same thing!
