Not that urgent. I notice them only when I set my TV very bright.

I don't think so. The Star Fire logo is drawn in two steps. 

First "Star" is drawn and the part of "Fire" is skipped (different code). Then 
there are only distortions on the "Star" lines (which don't change at all!).

When the game starts with drawing "Fire" the distortions on that block of 
rows are immediately there, even if only the first pixel of "F" is displayed.

So, IMO it can not depend on any display signal, it must be the code.
