It's the clipping plane.

Yes, it's the OpenGL clipping plane.

Try reducing the size of the layout grid.

by default it's the [ and ] keys, which depending on your keyboard layout can be anywhere or nowhere at all. otherwise, you can always change the gridsize under the display option ( "d" shortcut )

You can try enabling the Fixed Near Clip Distrance under the Display Options. Set the number smaller to something like 1mm if it still doesn't work. This option sometimes causes other clipping problems so you might want to turn it off when you're not going close up on the objects.
