I assume it's bad all over the screen to the same extent? It's kinda weird. As you can see in the picture, these are supposed to have a blob of glue on them from the factory so they can't move. It's all relative - if the rings, the guns, the shadow mask, and the phosphor haven't moved, it should be very reliable. If any of those have moved apart from the rings, you have bigger problems anyway, but that's hardly likely given the symptom.
Thought - have you opened it up and made sure the magnetic ring assembly hasn't come loose on the tube neck? I have seen them where the rings are all still glued to each other, but the clip that holds them all in place has come loose and they're floating around. That's pretty easy to put back. The clip I'm talking about is the one in the picture nearest the tube base board.
