Screenshot showing display corruption

This is a screenshot showing when the e-mail display became corrupted about 50%
down the email that I will attach next. If I scroll back up before it becomes
corrupted, the screen scrolls and displays properly. If I scroll back down it
becomes corrupt again. It seems there is a limit of some sort in modest.
