I have similar problems on my 600MHz ibook since a few weeks. The
difference is that mine was not sent in for repairs recently (it was in
march 2003, display problems...).
The problems appeared shortly after i started running 2.6 kernels, but
they also occur in 2.4, so I don't think this is related.
My /proc/cpuinfo says:

(I forced the clock to 400MHz hoping that it will have fewer problems)
