It's not normal and there were issues with extruded layers when other layers overlapped and these had masks on them - the end-result (extremely poor anti-aliasing) however differs greatly from yours. The latest AE build, released last week, solves the issue I mentioned. Hopefully it'll sort yours out.
If it doesn't, then post screencaps of your Comp and Timeline panels. More screencaps and detail helps.
