This is a Mavericks problem. I saw it in Texshop with the native previewer, and also in Preview. In my case the bad lines would disappear if I scrolled one way (up or down, I forget) and reappear if I scrolled the other way. I’ve been on Yosemite for a couple days now and I don’t see this problem any more. Perhaps one reason why you should update :)
