Confirming based on the screenshot, but I have never seen this, so now we need to figure out how to reproduce the problem.

One thing to try: In a terminal, run "xwininfo" and click on the USC window. Now resize the window. Does the garble go away? If so, please copy and paste the xwininfo output into the bug report. Thanks.

Ran xwininfo and resized USC with no change. Tried maximizing, half screen,
and random resizes with no effect on the garbled text. Including pic
of maximized USC with xwininfo, maybe you can tell something from that.
