I dont see any patch here, nor the upstream tag has sense in this
contect. please dont use tags without knowing what they are.

in which panel is this happening? report the exact steps to replicate

No i dont, you need to be specific and on topic, and not using a
mocking language (what's that, pascal? who's relevant here?)

So report them, one by one, with precise and exact information on how
to replicate them and how you would address these glitches.

if you use the word 'epic-fail' in the subject, you NEED to provide a
