Are the images you provided supposed to show the effect clearly? I don't see anything answering to your description showing in them.

If the aberration doesn't appear in screenshots, it may be your monitor creating the effect. I have a 20" BenQ in the workshop for service at the moment which had a similar sounding symptom, streaking behind the image. It was a bad contact in an internal connector.
