If I remember correctly (I'm still having my morning coffee), the peak file
format has changed somewhere at the 0.99.x series. Remove all files in the
peaks/ directory under the session directory ([SessionName]/peaks/). When
you next restart ardour, ardour will recalculate all peak files and things
should get back to normal.

About other visual strangeness you are seeing: a screenshot will visualize
graphics issues a lot better than words. ;)

If the previous version you were using is 0.99beta[something], you might've
just been using a version with a different theme. We changed the theme
sometime during the beta -phase. The screenshoton the ardour.org frontpage
shows the current theme for the 0.99.x lineage.
