I have the same problem only when the screen shuts off. The problem doesn't 
exist if I switch to a virtual terminal. It also corrects itself once I login 
or start using the gui.
Lowell has a point here. It may be your monitor. I'm using a generic monitor 
and the problem also exists with X.org on Debian Linux with the same monitor.
