Per my original post, this was reproducible with ad-blocking enabled OR disabled completely with caches flushed and restarting OW to verify nothing resident in memory. Current OW release version with behavior observed under MacOS 10.5.5 and 10.4.11.
Based on the feedback in this thread, I played around with other settings and found what is causing this. I have colors set to override page styles by default, (jalopnik is unreadable, otherwise) and this somehow produces this rendering artifact. I get correct rendering if I disable my preferred text and link colors. I'm not applying a stylesheet, so I'm baffled why this setting should produce this result. Using a custom stylesheet just for link colors in Safari and setting backgroud/link colors in Firefox does not do this. This would seem to be bugged.
