I can't reproduce that issue here on linux with the official 64bit build of 5.9.

Are you using an official build? What OS/Desktop environment are you using?

This was Windows 10. Version 5.9.0 demo download. It doesn't occur under OS X. I haven't tried the Linux version, but the OS X version doesn't scale, so maybe that's related. This happens at both 1920 by 1200 native resolution, and at that with fonts scaled to 125%. It also occurs with the resolution bumped down to 1600 by 1050. Intel HD 4000, version driver.

Note that this behavior is also exhibited to a lesser degree in the menus. I just noticed that.

I can confirm this issue on Windows with 5.9, although it doesn't seem as pronounced as in your attachment. I'm not sure of the cause of the problem at this point. Thanks for the report.
