I'm wondering if the artifacting, which I noticed primariliy at the fade-outs,
is a function of going from the PAL wide masters to NTSC....

That's correct. My suspicion is that when they did the auto-assembly for the
PAL wide versions, the computer got a timecode wrong and glitched the "teacup"
sequence.
