FontPreferencesPopUp and LocalizationPreferences-* illustrate NSPopUpButton
text drawing.
WorkspaceMenu+HelpPanel illustrates - i guess - related problem:
"Workspace" menu lacks border at the right side.
The other problem is with my custom HelpPanel that contains NSMatrix with
index list (note selection offset).
Plus (it's hard to make screenshot of insertion point) in NXTHelpPanel's
NSTextField insertion point drawn shifted at 20-30 pixels to the right
until there's no entered text.

Now I'm using 0.25 version of GUI and Back - all works correcly.
Somewhere between 0.25 and 0.25.1 of GUI NSStringDrawing was massively
changed by you. Do you know what is the cause of these inconsistencies?
