"The application is specifying a Font as "Courier New" and style Font.BOLD.
But the API we use to retrieve the font name to pass to API is the wrong
one (our bug) and we pass the full face name of "Courier New Bold".
So we pass that *and* the requirement for a bold style to GDI which then
lets the driver decide how it wants to handle this. ie this meaning
"bold" of an already "bold" font.
In this case the PCL5e driver decides that it the way its going to handle this
is by creating extra bolded bitmaps from an already bold font which now looks
ugly as well as being badly spaced.
This probably isn't very frequently used code in the driver so its buggy and
gets the advances of the bitmaps wrong (a driver bug)." - prr
This is already fixed in tiger beta (b20). Changes made for 4884389 fixed it.
