Current OS: 10.7.5, latest LO version. Problem is present since the first version of LO.
As can be seen on the attachment, while scrolling Writer sometimes leaves text distorted and leaves some parts of the glyphs disappeared (distinguishable by not equal height text rows) in some cases. Selecting the text or scrolling till that part leaves the screen and scrolling back up restores the text.
Not a major issue, but definitely inferior behaviour compared to MS Word or Pages. Plus, it leaves the impression that Writer is not a competent software, even not able to render simple text properly.
I will continue to add relevant screenshots as problem reoccurs.

Liberation serif bold rendering issue
Compare bel and irtme parts. Bel is definitely bolder than the rest of the word

another rendering problem
Compare rendering between two lines.
I sometimes can confirm this bug. But I've got not that 'big' render issues. In most cases just a 'render error' like yours (see attachment Liberation serif bold rendering issue (7.88 KB, image/png) 2012-11-11 19:28 UTC, Emir Sarı).
I'm setting this bug as confirmed, but not that many or big as of Emir Sarı. Thanks for adding this bug.
Technical info: Mac OSX 10.8.2; LibreOffice 3.6.1 RC1 ((Build ID: a9a0717)

Because this bug was reported using Linux, therefore I mark bug platform as 'ALL'.
*** Bug 58358 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Thanks for the bug-chase Joren!
This is one of the cosmetic issues that makes LO look unprofessional. I thought this was only a Mac only issue, but seeing it present on Linux also surprised me. I hope this will get fixed soon.
NeoOffice has apparently solved this issue. In comparison, the fonts in LibreOffice are fuzzy to my eye, especially at smaller sizes.

I am definitely not happy having seeing those to bugs being marked as duplicates of this one. Bug 60031 is definitely a duplicate of my bug 58358, but they describe a much more severe failure than the more cosmetic failures described here.
When 58358 or 60031 surface, any editing of a longer writer document is impossible. It is the sole reason that kept me from updating my 3.5.7 installation to any 3.6 version. It occurs only with rare combinations (of graphic driver, setting, what else?), but on my main system I found no workaround.
There is a new text engine used for Mac but still incomplete, please help us completing it by downloading LO 4.1 Beta1 and see if this bug still there.
Link to download LO Beta http://www.libreoffice.org/download/pre-releases/
Note: I've changed the title of the bug from "(Writer) Onscreen text rendering issues"
I'd love to give some feedback but since newly moved abroad I only have limited internet capabilities, will test soon!
Bug 42000 is still reproducible. This is rather a specific issue regarding accents.
Bug 60267 seems to be fixed for the moment.
Text is still fuzzy in LO 4.1 beta1. I see no change from 4.0. Text in NeoOffice is still sharper.
I am viewing with a Macbook Air (non-retina screen) I imagine folks with Retina screen Macbooks are noticing very fuzzy text.
Has Coretext been implemented in LO? This is badly needed. Please invest in this improvement for all Apple users!
Could you attach a sample file and screenshots from 4.0 and 4.1 respectively?

Text rendering sample from v126.96.36.199

Text rendering sample from v188.8.131.52 beta 1
I think I can see what you mean. Under low zoom levels and small font sizes, text in NeoOffice seems more crisp.
Fuzzy text problem still continue with 4.2 master builds as well.
Restricted my LibreOffice hacking area
Increasing importance to high, since LibreOffice/AOO is the only GUI word processor left on Mac platform, which has inferior/bad text rendering. Literally every other word processor/text editor out there has crisp clear text rendering, except LibreOffice/AOO.
Other Mac users would agree I presume.
Moving this back to OS X only, the scrolling issue only on Linux is bug 58358--this issue has diverged a bit.

I absolutely agree that this should be high. Still present in OSX 10.11.1 and is very annoying.
