I'd guess you're using XvMC?  The deinterlacing filters don't work at 
all for XvMC.

If you're not using XvMC, double-check that the normal deinterlacing 
filter doesn't remove it.  This effect is exactly what I see if I feed 
an interlaced frame to my 1920x540p (or 960x540p) output.  I think it's 
the hardware scaling algorithms not doing a very good job with the 
interlaced picture.

If you're actually using an interlaced output mode (1080i), you're 
beyond my experience.
