[Micronet] Weird Minor Bug in OS 10.10.3

Jon Forrest-3
This isn't a big deal but it's an interesting regression
in OS 10.10.3.

After upgrading a MacBook Pro from 10.10.2, which
was working fine, to 10.10.3 I noticed that some
of what's displayed in the System Information app
(from "About This Mac -> "System Report ...") is
misformated. Instead of letters appearing next to
each other, they appear on top of each other! The
"Charge Information:" area of the Power section
is a good example. There are others.

Everything seems to be working fine, so this is
just a display issue. It is interesting that
this escaped Apple QA.

See https://discussions.apple.com/message/26899669#26899669 for a workaround.

That article escaped my Googling. Thanks for pointing it out.

I think, however, it's a little more complicated than what
they describe. I looked at two Macs, one running 10.10.1 and one
running 10.10.2, both with "always scroll" set, and the problem did
not occur. In both cases, without making any other changes, simply
installing the 10.10.3 upgrade caused the problem to occur.

From what I've read, it does seem to be a bug that was introduced in 10.10.3 related to accessing system reports when the scrollbars are set to be always on.  For example, see http://www.macintouch.com/readerreports/yosemite/index.html#d15apr2015 for another report.

Cheers,

Ian
