I have a similar problem with mythtv 0.20, Nvidia 6150
onboard video (using 8762 drivers).
I see the white lines only in the myth interface. In the blue
theme, I see them during the new fade transitions
between menu pages.
In the GANT theme, I see lines continuously while
the main menus are being displayed. I do not
see them in the recording screens or the setup screens.
I have a similar setup with an nvidia 5200 card that does not
have this interference.
The problems go away if I turn off the opengl transitions.
