I've noticed this kind of effect on the screen as well, specifically 
with \bigcup. The bottom of the big union symbol is sometimes missing, 
both in the TeXShop viewer and in Acrobat Reader. If my memory is 
correct, it happens only with magnifications > %100, and it doesn't 
happen consistently. The bottom of the union symbol usually reappears if 
scrolled off and then back onto the screen.
