Why does text get replaced with gibberish?

Probably a noob question.


Periodically some of the text in my app gets replaced with unintelligible strings of characters. See pic. I promise that in code all of the Text on this interface is in the English language using Latin characters in a pattern such as this:


text: qsTr("A Text String in English")


Yet every now and then on an unpredictable basis they get replaced by what you see in the pic. If I kill the app and relaunch it, the interface returns to the original, legible content. 


What did I do or not do that causes this and how do I fix it?
