Not that I know how to fix it, but this is surprisingly similar to a
problem I have been seeing on Firefox when it renders certain webpages.
Does the "hidden text" show up when you drag and select it by mouse?

FWIW, is one such webpage; the problem only
exhibits itself if the CJK Windows fonts are installed and set as the
default font for respective languages, specifically
/(Batang|Dotum|Gungsuh|Gulim)(Che)?/ as Korean.
