Bob still does it to me.  I've been told that turning on opengl-vsync
will fix it, but I still get it.  It makes the OSD jittery, like it's
bouncing up and down 1 pixel incredibly fast.  I think (I don't
remember because it never worked so I don't use it) that it did it to
the broadcast as well, ALTHOUGH it did really smooth the broadcast
itself out... especially the examples of the scrolling news ticker and
the simpsons (and other animated shows).
