DoD textures turn Matrix-like

Weird things happen in complex software. Have a look at these in-game images from Day of Defeat. The textures have been muddled and instead of dirt or concrete on the floor we have letters, repeated again and again. I wonder why it's (mostly) the ground that's affected. Hmm... Anyway, click on an image to see a larger version (800x600).

Charlie, submerged
Charlie, looking back towards the beach
Donner, somewhere near the spawn
Donner - notice the white streaks
Donner again, some more streaks visible
Donner once more - a closer view of the text, just lots of the letter 'h'.
