Yes, it is mostly in the area that pops up on screen when you hit info.

Using OpenGl High Quality.  The distortion does not appear.  Using QT or
OpenGL Painter.
Using Vdpau slim, normal or high the distortion does appear using either QT
or OpenGL painter,

This only occurs on 720p resolution.

Here is a link to a pic showing the distortion.

Please let me know if I can offer more info.
