WTF? Why? This is too crazy..

I guess timing is close enough to real hsync and TV allows small jitter in hsyncs without causing display glitches.

I don't think I want to bother with this. It would require huge changes everywhere..

Indeed very interesting case. Also bad that it would require such huge changes to fix.

p.s.
I have checked all demos again ... hope you did not overlook below by mistake testing on real Amiga:

The end by trilobit, Vactro 2 by Angels, ALUMINIUM by SYNTEX

as didn't find anywehere you mentioned these. I'll be here in case you'll need any more info about.

LOADING 'SMOOTH COPPER' , NOTICE THAT
THE SPLITS ARE MOVING ON EVERY SECOND
