If color slider is disabled, problem disappears at render.
If ramp is enabled in colors panel, problem disappears in texture preview, too.

@Sergey Sharybin (sergey) - Please note that the .png file that is being used to map the glow already shows signes of color banding (also known as 'stepping' and 'ringing'). This is probably being aggravated by the mapping process.

The filter also influences it.

Filter size and filter type can also make it disappear.

Looke like crappy mipmap generation, I'm on it
