I strongly suspect either the latter, or HW issues with your monitor.
I've noticed that at various H and V sync settings, I'll get some mild
pincushioning or hourglassing of my monitor, try xvidtune (without
saving results -- unless you like them).

Try also dragging your xterms to various locations onscreen.  All
rectangles should be drawn the same way.

I suspect drugs <g> or optical illusions.
