that was your terminal font, not 'guifont' in gvim, right?
Do you have similar issues in other full-screen console
applications when using the same "bad" font(s)? (could it be a
corrupted font file?)
What are these offending fonts named?
Also, what is $TERM set to...both within Vim and outside Vim?
Does the problem persist if you start vim with something like
bash$ TERM=dummy vim file.txt
to force a bogus termcap entry?
Does this persist over a reboot? (if the Vim executable is
getting cached in RAM and it's a bad chip, a reboot might
allocate it at a different location)

I don't know if the answers to any of my questions will lead
anywhere, but hopefully they'll shed a little light on some of
the areas that might be at issue.
