Graphic Glitch gradually appear

As I use the app ( v0.15.9, Windows 11) graphical glitches accumulate as shown in the attached image. These seems to occur in most/all areas of the interface and do not go away until the app has to refresh that area (expand/collapse outline or folder structure) or I take focus away from the app all together and then click back into Obsidian.

Oddly, “show debug info” produces the wrong windows version in it’s output. It’s output is below, showing Win 10, but I’m actually on Win 11 21H2 Build 22000.856 per the output of winver. This system was upgraded from Win 10 recently though.
