I cheated a little and tried the latest aptosid kernel
linux-image-aptosid-amd64_3.6-12_amd64  - same screen corruption

I followed some documentation and started to compile and install the
latest mesa on Sid...  I gave up after a few hours and as a test
installed Arch as it has a new Kernel 3.6.3-1 and the latest Mesa
9.0-1 - Still had screen corruption issues.

Bad for a Debian bug report, sorry about that but I was getting a bit

I can't help but think it's something to do with the monitors.  I
mean, why would a different model monitor (Benq) that has native
1920x1080 work fine when used paired with one of my AOC's?  But using
the 2 identical model AOC's causes the problem?

I am going to try fglrx on Arch for a test.
