Strange SmartSDR display rendering.

I was zooming out (using the - on bottom left) on the SmartSDR display this morning as one half of the waterfall looked oddly distorted and I thought that there might be some kind of strange signal on the band.  The picture below shows what ended up being displayed.  Unfortunately, I did not capture a screen shot of the distortion.

I am using a Samsung 4K display and this it the first time I have seen a odd rendering.  I shutdown SmartSdr and restarted it and all was well again.  Unless, it happens again I will not submit a support request but was wondering if other get these kind of odd display renderings?

I've seen the waterfall out of sync with the upper display (showing sigs in one and not in the other, as if the waterfall was off a few kc; changing bands fixed it). It looks like you were missing part of a refresh. A band change might have cured it...
