I wonder if it's some kind of frequency problem. This happens on my wife's machine when she runs Linux (woody) but not Windows and only at 1024x768. That video card is an SIS 6326. My machine has an S3 Trio 3D 2X and does not have the problem at any resolution.
Possibly xvidtune will fix it. (I haven't tried it).
