Possible graphic/font bug? - Han - 10-02-2013

Could someone test the following on their real calculator?

In CAS mode, bring up any menu with more than 6 items. On my calculator, all the shortcut numbers appearing on the left of each menu item appear normal, except for the 6-th item. Sometimes I see a black square. After trying to find this character in the char catalogue (I never did find it and gave up partway through all the Chinese (?) characters), I noticed it switched to an ellipsis.

Does anyone else have this issue? I'm trying to figure out if this is a result of something else I did, or if it is a minor bug.

Edit: First pic shows menu; second pic shows clock likewise glitched by weird font

Definitely not anything I've ever seen...very strange. It appears the "6" character in the current mini font cache has become corrupted (see the clock) . Restarting the calc (on-apps) should restore it just fine I would anticipate. If it doesn't, I really have no clue what could be happening.

That fixed the issue. What's really odd, though, is that only the 6 was messed up ... and it would occasionally change from one strange character to a different one.
