I've often seen this on my system as well (AMD64, HD-3000 on DVB, no
XvMC, 7174 drivers, FX5200 to DVI out).

Hasn't bothered me enough (yet) to complain about.

I think there were some recent patches posted on -dev to address
something related to OSD and different aspect ratios, but I don't know
if it was for this squishing, or some other reported problem of the
OSD wandering around on the screen ...
