   That bottom line typically displays a 'progress bar' using graphical characters.
At the start of the show, that line is blank (0% through the show), and after that
it shows a rough percentage of completion of that process.  If you don't have the
same character set that contains those graphical characters, then you'll see whatever
characters are in those positions in the 'assumed' character set.

   I saw this same behavior that you described when I first installed my LCD display.
I upgraded the firmware for the display font on my display (with the desired character
set) and haven't had an issue, since.
