No, even after un/reinstalling, I still see

* When emacs starts up, the display is usually shifted either down a
  line or to the right a column from where it should be, with
  extraneous characters showing in either the minibuffer, or the top
  of the display (first line under windows titlebar) or both.

* After startup, the minibuffer's contents, and sometimes that of the
  window, shifts to the right. I can "move it back" via the horizontal
  scrollbar, but then I lose the first column of the minibuffer prompt
  (or of the contents of the window).

* After startup, if I change buffers, "garbage" characters from the
  previous buffer (i.e. normal 7-bit ASCII chars, just ones that don't
  belong in the current buffer) are often visible in the new one.

Well, it took me awhile to figure out how to do this (nothing in the
FAQ or User's Guide :-<), but now I've documented it at
