Felix Halterjagged edges on text in RED and media100

Since quite some time I'm getting these jagged edges:

and I can't get rid of them anymore.
The above text sample is vector based arial, size 216, in the styles palette choose bevels Nr. 1 America, and put this on a black background.

The jagged edges appear in RED 4.1 with Producer and with HDx (lossless codec). They don't appear in 8.2.2 and RED 3, so If I hook up the monitor to the old 8.2.2 and RED 3 everything looks fine.

Now here is an interesting one:
If I toggle the resolution in RED between full, half and quarter I see the changes on my monitor. But if I toggle quality between high and draft I don't see any change at all, same as if I press "display HQ frame to monitor", no change. So it looks like my system is outputing draft quality only!! Where can I change that?
(btw. play real time effects and titles in draft quality is not checked in the project settings of m 100) And one more thing: Direct export from RED to QT looks fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Felix
