I cannot say I can reproduce this on my machine.  I see something
similar in Emacs 24.5, but not with the current master or release
branch.

I think what you see could be explained by changing the frame size by
non-integer number of characters (i.e. by a number of pixels that is
smaller than the canonical character width).  But since I cannot come
up with a reproducible recipe, I cannot debug this.
