Just to wrap things up here - for future reference.

The reply of Galahad/FLT is out in the woods. I have done some pixel counting and it's very clear that A500 hires resolution is not 640x512, but 640x256. So there should be no interlacing.

Here are the images:

Cut out of the windowed area is 640x512, but the pixel height is two pixels - look at the trashcan. So it's effective 640x256.

As roondar mentioned, it's just a working hypothesis that the CPU loop is not aligned with DMA cycle boundaries - and that's good enough for me.

But, as with any hypothesis, it could be cool to test this on a real A500. I would do it myself, if I had the hardware...
