Bug in Illustrator on MacBook Retina with external monitor

I noticed that in Illustrator CS6 - after the Retina update

when I am working on a document on my MacBook Pro Retina - it look fine

but when I connect to external Thunderbolt display - and start moving around objects on layer

I get a bunch of white lines through my graphic where the object rectangle boundries were (in old position and when moved to new position)


this is a display only issue as it does not get exported into final imgae, and it can be cleared by refreshing the screen (drag a window on top of it for example to force a redraw)


however it makes editing very annoying as I'm workign with precision elements and they are getting sliced up with 1 pixel white lines everywhere and I have to go manually clear them every minute or two which is distracting.


Anyone else having this issue? I suppose I'll open a bug report but wanted to see if anyone else noticed it as well.
