Ah never mind, I took 'I have now downgraded the following packages'

No, xserver-xorg-core it seems to be. The thing is, there were only
small changes in its Xv code between those two versions. Although there
was a known regression fixed by the attached patch, its only known
symptom is a server which only happens with a driver hook not used by
the ati driver. You may still want to try the patch though.

Also, your description of the problem sounds like it might be related to
the colour key. What does

xvinfo|grep -A2 COLORKEY

say when the problem occurs?

Last but not least, it might be helpful if you could capture the problem
with a digital camera or something.
