Very odd.  Actually, I have some theories.  I suppose you'd rather not
open the carts?  It might be helpful, but if they're your only copies
I wouldn't want you to open them.

99% of the screen image is not distorted, right?  So there you have it!  :D

Heehee.  Couldn't resist!

Thomas, it's problems like this that make me wish I could come and stay
with you for a week.  I know just about everything there is to know about
the 2600's video.  And quite a lot about the rest of the system.  And
everyone knows you could program the 2600 to walk like a duck if only
you considered it a challenge!  ;)  I bet together we could find out
exactly what's going on.  A better idea is for you to come here and stay
with me.  That way I don't have to go through US customs!  :D
