I would suggest trying to install new(er) drivers for your graphics card.

the thing I don't get though is, that's never happened before.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. The smart left a long time ago.

Have you tried resizing the window to a different size?

it happens on any size. Full screen, or... well, tiny I guess.

Just try to think what you've changed before you first noticed. Did you install any updates? Like the latest Flash Player? There must be something common when this happens on the systems of several people.

It's also remarkable that these lines appear exactly every 10 pixels; in between the terrain blocks....

it kind of helps with map editing. lol. But when playing the actual game, they're really annoying.

Could it have something to do with CW2? Did you play cw1 after you installed cw2 without lines

I had a dream that I was playing CW2. It was fun. But, I lost :(

Hmmm... Might be right actually. It just started doing that after cw2.

I've kinda gotten used to it now, and with cw2 out, I don't play cw1 that much any more.

I noticed in this picture you posted that the lines only seem to appear on certain elevation levels and not everywhere on the screen:

I haven't found an explanation yet, but Virgil may know....

Does this happen for more maps? Or with different window sizes? Try to pay attention to some details please. Do the lines ever cover the green projection area by the collectors? Do the lines ever cover the Creeper?

It happens with every map I play, and on any window size. It covers the green projection areas, creeper, but not buildings... They just seem to be a part of the terrain. This should give you an idea of what it looks like.
