Ever since switching to ncurses 5.9-dev some months ago I have been noticing the same display bugs in "my" applications which use it, htop and ncmpcpp. This happens on both my computers. See the screenshots:


The occurrence is not entirely consistent, sometimes htop will look fine directly after start. In ncmpcpp it almost always happens, especially after a few songs with the playlist open.

Manually selecting a line will "reset" it to proper display, letting the program display something else (eg another ncmpcpp menu - which will leave the status bar corrupted, as it's not switched) or changing console dimensions brings back the proper one, too.
