The reason some people are not seeing the problem is that they've resized
their Results window so that there are no partial lines. When you resize the
Results window, Stata tries to constrain it to full lines and full characters
so that you don't see part of a line or part of a character. However, the
default window setting for the Results window is off a little bit so that
you're getting a partial line. For now, resize your Results window and the
problem should go away.
Chinh, thank you for the bug confirmation and clarification of the issue. A question about the proposed remedy: I have resized my Results window to what I think is quite wide (about 75% of the width (and 80% of the height) of a 17" LCD @ 1280 x 1024), and I am still seeing (well, not seeing, literally) occasional missing lines. Should I be doing something else? For now, I have turned off the "Enable Fast Scrolling" option to eliminate the bug. Thanks again.

-- Mike
