Ahhhhhhh. That wasn't quite the cause -- I'd already tried quite a few cat
5e cables -- but it was related to the switch. After messing around for
very nearly 24 hours I've learn an important rule. Don't put a gigabit
switch near, or on top of, a 1200VA UPS. Judging by the effect they have
on a monitor they produce some pretty hefty electro-magnetic fields.
Thanks a lot for the help all, apologies for the noise :(
