This setting is definitely the problem. I can now reproduce the behavior.

The order of items in org-agenda-time-grid changed recently, which I
think is the root of the problem. The value for this variable should be
a list of four (not three) items. Even if time grid is not enabled, the
3rd item in the setting is used to generate trailing characters that
follow the time string in the agenda. This should be a string, not a
list of numbers.

You can type C-h v org-agenda-time-grid for all the details. Here is the
default value of org-agenda-time-grid for reference. Note how the order
differs from your current setting:

((daily today require-timed)
 (800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000)
 "......" "----------------")

Hope this helps,
