This an effect called Z-fighting, and is one of those pesky things that has plagued computer graphics for a long time. It's caused by the limited resolution of the depth buffer in modern GPUs.

We're working on this problem right now actually, by implementing a Logarithmic depth buffer. Georg is hard at work rewriting a lot of our shader tech to use the new system. Hopefully it will be done soon, and we can integrate it into one of the coming updates.
