Screenshot illustrating the reported display glitch
When using verbose playlist layout, the song rating is shown as one column. When clicking the stars to adjust the rating, a display glitch is visible (see attached screenshot). Rating can still be changed, but it is not very pleasant.
This is reproducible.
I've seen this too and did consider filing a bug, but wasn't sure how what to file it against. Anyway, I have found that after clicking on the stars to adjust the rating and move the pointer to the left of the stars a drag pointer appears and I can drag it to the left until the stars line up with the ones underneath. Unfortunately it isn't permanent.
Mark: did you try modifying the layout itself? Of course you will need to make a copy of it, as the default layouts can't be modified by the user, but you can adapt a copy of it and the change should then be permanent.
I've already got a modified layout and I did try altering the spacings, but it didn't seem to make much difference. I couldn't get them to be directly above.

The problem is that the size of the stars changes when editing it, I think that needs to be adjusted.
Confirmed in current git, but since we are working on a release in June this might not be done in time.
It happens since the columns are adjustable in editing mode. For me it makes placing the rating impossible, it's just a wild guess where to click to set two or four stars...
Alas resizing of the columns is permanent though I didn't save anything - thus garbled my whole very hard worked out layout by accidently moving something :(.
Confirmed: Glitch occurs as of version 2.6.
Confirmed in v2.6.0-422-gfc07990
