Thanks for those. The low_error_factor was the one that shows the best 
improvement.
If I throw everything at it the dithering goes away, although the render 
time is rather long at 21 min/frame.

Here are my "Everything" settings:

     radiosity {
     pretrace_start 0.04
     pretrace_end 0.00125
     minimum_reuse 0.001
     count 700 25000
     recursion_limit 2
     nearest_count 20, 7
     error_bound 0.44
     low_error_factor 0.05
     }
