I think it means your refresh rate is way too high. Use something sane
and the problem should go away. BTW if you watch movies on your
monitor, you REALLY should set the refresh rate to 72 Hz (or rather
71.928 Hz, exactly 3x the framerate you plan to watch). Otherwise
you'll get slight choppiness. 4x framerate would also work, but that's
probably high enough to overload the BES's clock (like the trouble you
were reporting).
