COMPILATION: Font problems - missing fonts, wrong letters, strange fonts: info and discussion here. #2
EDIT: this is NOT caused by this filter specifically, this can happen to any filter and even without the filter. Just restart your game. Right now it's an engine related bug. There's absolutely no way for a filter to edit font type, the label itself or the kerning in the filter, (you can only change size, color, font, background and show/hide). Just restart your game, for now it's the only fix
I reported this bug to GGG and they said:

I Lowered the text size to 41 and it was sorted on my side. it looks like it's something to do with the resolution of the game. Looks like there might be an attempt to wrap the text on multiple lines on space, however the game can't do multi line. I don't mind commiting this change if you want?
I don't think that's the solution. It happens on some systems and it's a very rare bug. I think for now, I'll just stop trying to create workarounds for this issue, considering how rare it is and that a game restart fixes it.
Thank you for your feedback/offer though.

Yeah restarting the game is one way to fix it. Another way is to create a copy (physical file copy) of the filter and switch to the copy.
Also, I suspect it has something to do with certain applications running in the background. Also I've been recently able to reproduce this bug intentionally and I think I start understanding why GGG could not do it. I'll post more, once I'll confirm my findings.
@sanjsanj I don't get that error at all and I have the staff set to highlight for chancing purposes. Not sure what version you are using. But line 2706 for my version is a blank line under the " Hybrid flasks (normal)" section with no "Maelström staff" anywhere NEAR that line. So maybe it's time for you to update to a new version?
