Torque magnetometry at low temperature and in high magnetic fields B is performed on a MgZnO/ZnO heterostructure incorporating a high-mobility two-dimensional electron system. We find a sawtooth-like quantum oscillatory magnetization M(B), i.e., the de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) effect. At the same time, unexpected spike-like overshoots in M and non-equilibrium currents are observed which allow us to identify the microscopic nature and density of the residual disorder. The acceptor-like scatterers give rise to a magnetic thaw down effect which enhances the dHvA amplitude beyond the electron-electron interaction effects being present in the MgZnO/ZnO heterostructure
