For what it's worth, I have seen for years something similar across the
whole top panel, when switching from a text console to X or when
resuming after a suspend. It lasts for a fraction of a second, though,
until the display gets refreshed.

That's on a R128 laptop, with a "vga" console. My guess would be that
some video memory gets shared/reused, but I am not sure by whom and how
