Could these effects have anything to do with whether it's a PAL or NTSC 
chip?  I'm an American, and to the best of my recollection:

* Every VIC-II I've ever had, in a 64, 64C, or 128, produced lighter 
vertical lines running through the middle of each cell column;

* I've never seen sparkles when a register is written to.

(And red-on-blue is always horrendous)
