I can't explain why, but I wrestled with the same issue - displacement & scaling not effecting the problem.
However, editing the Current Video Playback Profile so that the matching rule used a different renderer (xv-blit to opengl, in my case), attempting playback, and then switching it back made the blue line disappear permanently.
I can't explain it, of course, but it worked for me.
