I experienced the same problem with my own Lua dissector: 

Even when stripped down to only set the string for pinfo.cols.info to something
non-constant then after some scrolling the text got scrambled. 
e.g. pinfo.cols.info = tostring(pinfo.number)

It doesn't happen when assigning fixed strings, like in
pinfo.cols.info = "MyInfo-Texts"

It also scrambles pinfo.cols.src or pinfo.cols.dst if you set text on these.

This also happens with 1.4.0 and 1.5.0 (didn't check older versions yet).

This is rather annoying for me esp. when I want to show a protocol problem to
customers :-(

BTW: the tree strings are not touched, only the list columns are concerned.
