Font rendering in (Chr)Edge

Is anyone else having font rendering issues in the new Edge? I am seeing random amounts of text display as hieroglyphics (more appropriately, different alphabets such as Thai, Khmer, Greek/Cyrillic, Kanji, Chinese, and generally slightly larger and bold) in the middle of paragraphs. Selecting the paragraph will correct the display, though the problem may pop up in a different paragraph. FWIW, I have no language packs installed on the computer.

I have reported it in Feedback, but cannot screenshot it because the screenshot functionality in feedback has been showing a black screen for the last few builds. I am running the Dev Channel. Classic Edge, and Firefox do not suffer from this issue. I have removed Chrome from all computers with the advent of (Chr)Edge, so I do not know if it is Chromium or Microsoft specific.

    <p>It's an upstream Chromium bug that Edge picked up (Dev and Canary). The edge team got the fix for it last Friday or something, so it hasn't rolled out yet.</p>
