Same issue here on multiple dell latitudes E6540 laptops in company
(using Ubuntu 14.04.5). And it does happen after resuming from a
suspend. Almost every open application is affected with
distorted/missing letters. Looks like
and-missing-letters (intel driver issue?). Only restarting lightdm (or
logging out and in again), fixed the situation.
