A disturbance in the force?

Once today, while my FreeRunner was plugged in on USB, I tapped the 
screen to wake it up, and it came up, but all the pixels in text were 
jiggly, as though the screen were being refreshed at the wrong rate. 
When I called up the qwerty keyboard, it appeared quite scrambled.
Sadly I didn't have a video camera trained on it at the time, and by the 
time I whipped out my pocket video camera, it had gone into suspend 
mode; when I hit the power button to awaken it, the problem was gone!

I know it's not my eyesight :-) This really happened. But only once.

I'll make sure I have the video camera handy in case it comes back,
although, recording a 640x480 video of the freerunner will be pretty 
grainy and probably won't accurately show the problem (due to things 
like refresh rates)... Sigh.
