Default Text rendering bug? (Moto G/KitKat 4.4.2)

Font/text rendering bug??

With the moto G, a few users (incl. myself) have noticed screen font rendering issue (of which I definitely did not notice before KitKat).

It seems as if text is garbled (ever so slightly) with some words with artefacts around the letters....

Anyone else notice something like that? Its noticeable in any webpage, Google play books or even Google Now Results....Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

It has happened to me a few times too. Usually its the text under the icons on the home screen, but today all the icons in the launcher's app drawer had garbled text, but the rest of it seemed fine. Restarting the phone fixed it.
It's happened with both - Dalvik and ART, so i guess maybe that's not the issue.
