I've noticed on a very few handful of occasions that a certain character in my typeface will appear glitched, as pictured above. However, upon restarting the program, the character is back to normal. This has happened a few handful of times, and every time restarting the game will fix it, even if I just started the game in the first place and the bug appeared.

Does anyone know what causes this? My game has a lot of scaling/camera work, could that be the issue?

Pretty sure that's your GPU starting to fail, having it's memory getting corrupt on the fly; re: importance of good airflow through the case. Or maybe it's a faulty driver.

I remember there was a bug like this where some font data got corrupted. I think that was fixed a while back though. Are you on an old version?

The version was 10.1, I updated it now, I'll keep an eye out now.

I believe 0.10.2 fixed that issue with this commit. At least, the symptoms look identical.

That does seem exactly like it! Many thanks!
