When a cell comment has been shown because the red dot was "mouse-overed", not all cells the comment was overlapping are redrawn correctly, as part of the shadow (usually the bottom) for multi line comments may be left in place.
This seems to happen only for overlapped cells BELOW the one which contains the comment.
The problem has persisted for at least two years by now. At that time, it was most shadows, not just those below, so some improvement has been seen ;o)
Could you please provide a screenshot of this error?

Navigating into the shadow
This should illustrate the shadow error quite well.
Done. Good hunting ;o)
would you please attach a test .ods file where you can reproduce this issue?
I've sent the file privately
Created attachment 94157 [details]
removed sensible informations from the file you sent me privately.
bug is reproducible from LibO 3.6.0 to 4.3alpha
not reproducible in LibO 3.5.7, hence regression of the 3.6.x branch
set status NEW. updated version field. added regression keyword.
added Calc expert to CC list.
Same problem exist in 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124Beta1

Moreover, I have made some test on Ubuntu (14.04 in a WM) and on Windows 7 64 bits with the *same* file.
The issue only occured on Windows.
Version 126.96.36.199 is even worse. If I mouse over the red dot for a comment, the entire comment and it's arrow will be left on screen, until you navigate into the cells it covers - and then only the relevant cell will be redrawn, leaving the rest of the comment visible. Scrolling the page will remove the comments.
I have a partial screendump with four visible comments.

Could not reproduce on OS X with LO 5.1 nightly.
Setting to NEEDINFO. Does this persist with the latest nightly build?
After providing the requested info, please reset this bug to UNCONFIRMED (should it be persisting) or WORKSFORME (should it be solved with a newer LO version).
it's a Windows only bug
Yep, would be great to have it retested.
retested under Win8.1x64
bug still present in LibO 188.8.131.52.alpha1+

adding bibisectRequest in the whiteboard
the issue started in 3.6.x see comment 8
opppsss... sorry I forgot that Windows only bugs are not bibisectable...
This also reproduces in Linux. See bug 73287.
Adding keyword 'preBisect' as this regression was introduced before branch 4.4 and therefore it can't be bibisected as there's no bibisect repository for this branch.
any progress about this? Still present in LO 5.4.2

The issue seems to be less important in 220.127.116.11 (x86 - Windows 10)
On my system, the shadow issue only affects the upper border (previously there were also some issue with the right border)
When the shadow issue is visible, it is a very thin line now, much less visible than before.
Finally, at some zoom level, there is no issue at all. (but I don't remember if it was already the case before)
I've not been able to reproduce the issue with either of the 2 attached test-cases.
If needed I can provide a new one with the effect described above.
