So, something interesting is going on, this is essentially all due to rounding errors, the transform that we have set has an 0.99993473 scale. This causes the rect we end up clearing to start at 0.03 instead of 0. Effectively not fully clearing the top line, I'm investigating this further.
So, this rounding error works like this: What this demo is going is continuously scaling by x, and then by the reciprocal of x, and assuming the matrix will be identical to what it was. This works most of the time, but for some scales this seems to result in a rounding error. Since the matrix is never reset this rounding error gets cumulatively worse. Due to large number of times this is happening, the error gets bad enough to cause artifacts pretty quickly.
Roc, what do you think? I'm looking at Demo.js around line 329. It seems to be that's just bad practice, without the save restore, or manually setting the transform back to what it was this would probably just work. Assuming a * s * 1/s to always return a again is simply a false assumption in floating point I think.
Yes. Maybe we should detect transform components being very close to integers and snap them to integers?
IE9 suffers from this issue just as much after running this for a short while.

Well it looks like it was fixed at some point because Firefox 18 doesn't exhibit this issue, but with 19+ it's back again.
Once again, disabling Azure Gfx Content fixes it.
Actually strike that last message, changing enabling Azure Canvas in Firefox 18 makes the garbage appear but in 19+ the garbage always shows regardless of the Azure Canvas setting.
