Graphical glitch - granular concentric circles atmo -SOLVED

The limb of the planet, even in darkness, will be rimmed by a granular line, and as you pan around the planet, or turn the camera on the ground, concentric circles - centred on the systems' sun(s) - render over the atmosphere model.
There were attendant nicks and scrapes in any procedurally generated textures in previous versions, but I haven't encountered that in 0.9.7.

I remember having this problem since I started using SE with version 0.9.4. I did something in 0.9.6 that fixed it, but I cannot, for the life of me, remember what it was. My copy of 0.9.6 still runs glitch-free.

I've been back and forth over the 0.9.7 CFG files, compared them with my 0.9.6 install, changed every option I could possibly imagine could be related, I've deleted the cached shaders folder I don't know how many times... I'm at my wits' end.

SE v0.9.7 opens with this glitch in effect about 80% of the time.

Anybody got any ideas?

I wanted to take more screens to illustrate... but SE opened glitch-free, this time! I'll update with more screens.

SE.log attached.

I'm running windows 7 64-bit on an Athlon 64 X2 dual core with 6 gigs of DDR 3 ram and a 1gb Radeon HD 4870.

That's not a glitch. It looks like an aliaseng. Do you have turn on the anti-aliasing on the graphics settings ?




Want some music of mine ? Please go here !

I've turned it on and turned it off. All it does is smooth the lines a tad. It is a glitch in the sense that it's not desirable, and is obviously caused by something functioning badly. I can't isolate anything that I'm doing consistently on the occasions when the glitch doesn't occur.

I've found only one other reference to it - in the 0.9.5 bug reports thread. That link has more illustrative pictures.

It was largely ignored, Vladimir suggested setting BugCracks true to that user, but it didn't help.

UPDATE!

Right, your post actually sparked off a memory in my head. I had to make a special profile for the program in ATI tray tools, and disable "high quality AF" under the Anisotropic Filtering section - setting it to Application Controlled instead. That's solved it!

After:


Showing how the effect is centred on the system's sun(s):


(very wide FOV makes glitch appear un-circular)
