It seems that they are displayed with such a font that the
font's glyphs are taller than the font's logical bounding
box.  Thus the topmost few pixels are overwritten by the
previous line.  That also explains why lowercase characters
are ok.

Please type C-u C-x = on problematic characters and check
what fonts are used.
