Sorry to have to report that line number pile-ups and hiding of text still
happening—we have text folding ;)...still happening on 0.5r855 (official)

Here are two jpegs

One when it happens


and one after using  Menu://Format/ Line Numbers (twice) to clear it


These pictures allow comparison of the text editor area concerned before and
after as it were.

This "feature" was running through out the document.
It suddenly and un-noticeably happened, you cursor down/or scroll, and there
it is.
