Default Electrical noise from LED strobes?

Has anyone experienced any electrical noise coming from these new-fangled LED strobe lights? I know they use Pulse Width Modulators to get the maximum brightness from the LED's without toasting them, and I have a theory that one of my customers (With such lights in the Wingtips) may have interference from super-imposed noise on the power line or direct radiation. If anyone with any experiences with these units making noise, even if its not troublesome for your APRS unit ( Assuming you have one, and if you are on this thread, I make that inference with little risk) I would like to hear about it.

I don't have access to the ship, or I would just hook it up the power line to my O-scope or listen for noise on an AM radio ( A very old installers trick)
