I have seen my share of bulbdial oddities– we’ve learned to help debug all of the different things that can go wrong –but I can’t recall seeing anything that someone might describe as “flickering.”  Can you say a bit more about exactly what it is that you’re seeing?

D35 and D34 do share a line in common, which is the LED5 signal, originating at the right side of R3. If one or both of those LEDs is electrically bad, it could (I suppose) cause something like this.  
I’d also suggest carefully checking the area at those two LEDs and around them for possible solder debris such as actual little bits of metal or excess solder flux. And, try stressing the LEDs mechanically (just a little push– not enough to rebend them) to see if that affects it.
