Theres plenty of them - most refer to notecards, because the problem
shows up easier in paragraph-based stuff like notecards. The more text
you have in a "line" (which a nc will wrap as a paragraph) the worse it
gets. An explicit \n resets it but in a long code line it happens too,
particularly when you have a UI scaling to anything other than 1.0 (some
folks report it when scale>1.0, some when scale<1.0) You can click
somewhere in a line of code and start typing to insert characters and
then see them inserting several places to the left of where the click
and the blinking cursor indicate they should, or see the cursor getting
further and further ahead of the characters you're typing, if you're
typing a new line.
https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-20178 and its dupes are the
clearest description of it for notecards,

As for versions, I screamed and fled from the 2.0.x viewers... only came
back to the 2.1 beta so I can tell you its definitely in 2.1 beta and later
From a printers perspective, it looks to me very much like the kerning
and tracking data in the fonts used are a little off. This would have
least effect with UI scale = 1, but as soon as you apply a scaling
factor other than unity then it show much more rapidly - my digital
typography knowledge is a little rusty but I believe that particularly a
tracking error would grow as a square function with line length when
scaled that way. If the data in the font itself is good, then its in the
