Thanks a lot. I've had the same problem two weeks ago and made a mental
note to investigate. I'm happy that I don't have to find it myself, now.
It's interesting: There were/are quite a few bugs like this in our
renderers. I've fixed one of them recently for letter-spacing. I hope we
find them all, eventually. Again, thanks. I'll do the change this
evening so this goes into 0.20.4.

No need to send the whole file. Normally, we prefer a CVS unified diff,
but this would be overkill for this issue.
