    It's because of the power supply in the screen. The better the PS, the less it jumps. Cheap screens usually have cheap PS:s so they jump more. Some even jump ALOT.

    The effect happens when you change a large part of the screan from dark to bright and vice versa. For instance, like you say, opening a big bright window (with a significantly darker background behind it).

    In short, it's nothing to worry about.

    I had that problem with a Viewsonic 17" CRT. I exchanged it for a Sony and had no further problems.

    doesn't seem to mean much since he has a sony. rather high-end one, too.

    i don't remember any jumping with my 19" flat crt viewsonic.
