I've noticed this kind of effect on the screen as well, specifically
with \bigcup. The bottom of the big union symbol is sometimes missing,
both in the TeXShop viewer and in Acrobat Reader. If my memory is
correct, it happens only with magnifications > %100, and it doesn't
happen consistently. The bottom of the union symbol usually reappears if
scrolled off and then back onto the screen.
