Sure, so when in the terminal you cd to a deeply nested folder (longer than the width of the terminal), the title of the window is displayed wrong. The highlight effect in the screenshot seems to have disappeared following an update, however the first letter of the username is not currently displayed.

Hello all,

I think I am affected by a similar problem with some application windows.

The first character of the window border title appears in a pixeled and bold fashion.

Please see my attached screenshots showing the applications VLC and Chrome (Google Hangouts).

Moreover, I have a very blurry bold font with the Image Viewer and PDF Viewer. Might this be a related problem as well?

I just noticed that this problem only occurs for unmaximized windows.

Maximised windows do not have this problem.

I was advised on the Ubuntu MATE forum it might be helpful to add the following information about my graphics card:
