See in many places:
License agreement, area shows normal, after I scroll - text is looking like at snapshot.
Also same effect are seen in code editor area, in some files, which have scrolling (big enough).
Note that eclipse, IDEA have no such issues, so it's probably due to different rendering method.
With such "issue", netbeans are almost unusable :(
I'll be glad to provide any info required, or run some tests at my PC.

Example of distorted text
can you reproduce this problem also when running jdk's swingset demo?
Okay, seems got this problem.
Same behavior in example Notepad and in SwingTest (I replaced one of sources to see how html is handled)
2179 lines = no problems,
2180 or more lines = problems (even if line is a single character).
Is this will help find some workaround, or you just leave this as "not our bug"?
You could possibly workaround the problem by setting some Java properties affecting how 2D drawing is done. Can you try the following and confirm here if it helped?
or more aggressively
See more info at
(you can set these properties either on command line or in netbeans.conf file in your NB installation)
