Switches can wear and break, too. This is the most frequent problem next to burned out bulbs, in my opinion. While they are designed to wear out and break safely, you never know. A short inside a switch inside a box is still a short and a fire and electrical hazard.

When you remove the cover plate, see if you can find anything that says it's supposed to flicker. If you can't, replace the switch with the one you bought before you opened the box. Switches are pretty darned cheap. Now if they made "quiet" switches that really were quiet or contain mercury.............
