I haven't seen that one, but I have seen and heard of a number of
problems. I think quite a few of them trace back to the wide-character
support patch which was applied 1 month ago. I tracked a bug in pdmenu back
to that today -- grrr..

Anyway, the slang frontend for debconf certianly has no code that would
shift an Ok button down like that when you click on it.

IMHO, the wide character support patch is causing far too many problems,
and needs to be reverted.
