not being an expert for the inner architecture of x.org, I would guess these 
artifacts are due to a bad synchronization of the color signals - or a bad 
interpretation of the signals by the monitor. 

There's something else that comes to my mind: Have you tried another monitor? 
Were you able to exclude that it's due to the monitor? 

I'm not very consistent with the xorg modules. Perhaps one of the more 
experienced list members could comment on font addressing issues?

Best wishes,
