OK.  This is for me to fix, so I'm acknowledging having seen it.

Yes.  It's one of these @dfn{wallpaper paste} bugs, where when you press
an area of wallpaper firmly to the wall, the paste under it pops up
another bit of wallpaper somewhere else.  It's going to be a horrible bug

Thing under every reasonable circumstance.
