It's a weakness in AE's rasterizatin engine. You get the same with very small layers, extremely "thin" layers (hairlines) and under anumber of other conditions. To circumvent it, I recommend you create a 3D layer with a statically centered lensflare and animate the layer position instead in 3D space. At some point inbetween, you could always cross-fade with your other flares.
Try downloading the demo of Knoll Light Factory and see if you have the same problem. The built-in AE Lens Flare effect is as old as the hills.

Yes, that too. ;-)
Thanks for that knowledge. I'll try both ideas.
For your interest, this is the scene as it currently stands. Live truck and road comped into a scene created in VUE 6. God thats a bloody cack handed bit of software. This is the first time I've actually managed to more or less complete a scene with it.
The darkness and lens flares hide a whole load of sins!!
