gnumeric selection artefacts

screenshot of bug
Gnumeric has (for me) always been a little bit sensitive to various visual artefacts. The latest version is particularly hard to use however:
Selection boxes are not visible for the first 10 displayed rows (so if scrolled down in a sheet to a position where the window starts with 30, the problem affects row 30-40).
A screenshot is attached. The problem also affects dragging down a selection to fill a column or row, attached a screenshot where I tried to drag down 3 cells to fill the column. Only at the very bottom (row 56) a small dashed line in a corner appears (it should clearly surround the whole area from 43 to 56. Dragging it down further may eventually show the dashed line on the right-side of the column correctly. Left side is still left undashed.
This is on an updated fc20, intel driver, under kde (disabling of desktop effects has no effect on the bug)

If you're really lucky, then this is a gtk+ behaviour change as discussed
and worked around in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=709320
That fix was in 1.12.8
If not, then I have no idea.

Can you try this build:
Looks like I built everything but forgot to prepare an update.
Sorry, wrong link. Correct one:
I updated my machine following latest fc20 branch today, and it seems to have been fixed. I cannot check atm whether it is the same rpm as linked above, but I think this has been fixed (cannot seem to close the bug as fixed though).
Can you try doing
# yum downgrade gnumeric
and see if the bug comes back to verify?
I can confirm that the bug did reappear with 1.12.7
