Could be a memory issue. We use Internet Explorer (the “WebBrowser” ActiveX control) for the Map Editor so we're not sure what the black blobs are, but they sound like some sort of application painting issue which can often be indicative of memory problems.
Can you check Task Manager when these are occuring to see if lots of memory is being used by either xmetal60.exe or iexplore.exe?
I have yet to see this occur here. We'll try to stress test some more.
