Ah ok if it's long running then yeah it's more likely to be a rendering
issue.  It could also be the FDI link getting its timings messed up
though, and consistently delivering the wrong bits; that could show up
in the same place on the screen each time, or it might move in a
pattern across the screen (usually from top to bottom).
