graphic bug: audacity 3 mixer board with 'a run' of broken pixel

Post by nuckelavee » Thu Apr 28, 2022 10:04 pm

i've begun using audacity 3.1.3 [AppImage] recently and i have noticed a graphic bug: when opening mixer board
a broken pixel appears running from right to left stopping near the slider if i touch mixer's ruler [slider's markings].
it is resembling 'a run' on nylon tights...
it happens every time i cross slider's markings with mouse pointer.
i was making custom interface theme when noticed this glitch so firstly i supposed it's an issue with custom
theming but it occurs with ALL PRE-INSTALLED themes too.
it DOES NOT OCCUR with audacity 2.3.3 from ubuntu repository.
BUT audacity 2 had a tooltip showing current gain level with its top aligned just where that 'run' occurs...

i am not sure still should i report this bug to nouveau developers or to open an issue on audacity's own forum.
maybe video driver or other low-level components are just fine.
i now cross-posting is a bad thing but i want to be sure of my software free from the issues so i am trying to.

here are the screenshots:
a. it is a moment i have noticed this graphic bug while making custom high contrast theme for audacity 3

The slider button appears to be missing in your custom theme.

Perhaps you could post a screenshot with the default "Light" theme. I suspect that you are seeing this issue: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/1709
