It is exactly as the original poster saw, I get a couple of pixels on the very first column that are stuck on or off.
As text scrolls past them they will occasionally change around.
And I am using v5.3.1.

A soft reset cleared it so I will snap a picture if it comes back!

The issue with stuck pixels in the display has been fixed in 5.3.1.
What's the issue you are seeing? (A picture may help...)
