Maybe this will give you some hints, I have a similar but less harmful
problem in my Debian Wheezy + IDE 3.5.13.2 installation:
 - Sometimes scrollbars of GTK applications are drawn in strange
   places, this is visible mostly in Palemoon, but sometimes in Geany
   or GIMP too. Scrolling back and forth (or other refreshing
   affected area) removes "fake" scrollbar.
 - Rarely, one character of UI font gets damaged until relogin:
   pixel line is missing, lower part is messed up, line is filled. It
   affects all instances of a character. The same thing happens (very
   rarely) for smallest icons, but never for UI parts or larger
   (>=24x24) icons.
 - Very rarely edited text in UI fields is missing, but selecting and
   deselecting it makes it visible again.
 - In LibreOffice text too long for field is drawn over field's end
   entering form area, but can be edited in field only.
The problems in my case are probably related to poorly supported Intel
graphics chip (I'm using Dell D430 notebook) as only the last one
appears if the notebook is used not in a dock (in a dock
it runs dual 2048x1536 displays).
