Yes; and I just had it happening with the lower half of \Bigl ( and
large braces (moustaches) at 160% .
On changing the scaling in the TeXShop window, the missing bits came,
and I've been unable to force the bad effect since.

There was nothing missing when the page was printed.

So I guess some electrons just got lazy for awhile.  :-)

Cheers,
