Anyone else having this problem? I just noticed it today. It started with what looked like underscores beside the app name on 2-3 apps. Something like this:

"Yelp_" and "_Photos"

They were both in folders.

Then, later today, I noticed that the lines appeared all across the screen horizontally, maybe 10 of them of differing widths. It lasted for a couple of seconds, until I pressed the home button. Then went away and didn't come back.

Sorry I couldn't capture a screenshot in time. I will try next time. The best I can do is find something similar:



It's like the line above, very thin (looks like a thin underscore) and disappears after a button is pressed. They were different widths and there were many of them.

I have another person reporting the same problem. Found this on another forum (his picture): Look at the "zero"



Same as mine.

The second picture looks like something that is a semi-known software issue. The first one, I'm not so sure.
