The garbled gnome desktop began with 3.8 kernels:

                                         Date    Desktop
----------kernel--------------------- Installed Garbled
kernel-3.7.0-0.rc7.git3.2.fc19.x86_64   Dec 03    No

kernel-3.8.0-0.rc3.git0.3.fc19.x86_64   Jan 11   Yes
kernel-3.8.0-0.rc3.git1.2.fc19.x86_64   Jan 15   Yes
(1) Takes long time for desktop to appear, background changes
to white and then back to normal one time.

During the above reboot testing I noticed that the screen flashes 
brightly with occasional garbled rectangles during dracut time, but only 
with the 3.8 kernels.

I have only seen xorg log errors one time with the 3.8.0-0.rc3.git1.2 
kernel. All other garbled sessions do not show any errors in the xorg log.

Partial installation history of other potential areas to investigate:
