Strange New Video Rendering Bug Since 1.62

The problem is not so easy to explain in text so I've included a link and an embed of a video demonstrating the issue.  In a nutshell... I noticed today that if I click on the menu bar anywhere, video rendering of all Foobar elements and windows kind of "glitch out" (with exception of audio, which remains unaffected).  So then I tried holding down the left mouse click longer, and everything just freezes all together.  Also if I click on any external visualizer window that's not socketed into the main window but open in a separate window, it will do the same thing, in fact even if I have a sub window open like Settings or something like Title Format Sandbox, same behaviour occurs. 

Currently I don't see this as a huge problem, but it is rather annoying and could possibly be the sign of something that should maybe be fixed/investigated.  Honestly I've been up all day coding for like 18 hours and I'm just too wiped to look into much more tonight, but if anyone has any ideas on how I should go about debugging this let me know and I'll do my best.  Thanks for your time!  :)

In case the uploaded video doesn't work right on here, I've also uploaded it to my youtube channel as unlisted, help yourself.

Anyone else having this problem as of late?  Thanks again for your time, hope everyone is safe and well :D

Woofity woof woof.  There... I did it! Are you happy now??? ;)

Another observation....

In addition I noticed another graphical glitch, if smooth scrolling is enabled, while scrolling anything in Foobar, all graphical elements freeze during scrolling and resume when scrolling stops.  If I DISABLE smooth scrolling, this behaviour is corrected and things no longer freeze, all other causes of the freezing still remain (grabbing a window, tapping on menu bar, holding menu bar, moving undocked foobar windows, etc.)

Woofity woof woof.  There... I did it! Are you happy now??? ;)
