This is probably a symptom of an X11 problem. Are you using COLA’s pre-compiled build on RHEL7, or did you build your own executable from source?

What is the non-windows system you are using to login to the linux system that fails to render the graphics properly? If it is a mac, what does it say about versions in the ‘About X11’ pop up window? What version of OS X is running?

It is probably going to require a new X11 release, something over which I have no control. I will need more information before submitting a bug report, however.
OS upgrades are always full of unexpected complications! :-(
