Swing text comp printed with unexpected spaces between chars, possible
Other (swing/java.awt.print issue, bad text/label printout result)
General description of the problem
Customer is migrating an applet from 1.3 to 6. When some applet is printed
using java.awt.print.* and Printable interface, some text (JLabel or JList)
is printed with unexpected spaces between characters, as if the text is
expanded to span evenly in its bounds.
Following is an example of label of 9 chars width. With 1.3, the label "abc"
is printed as left-justified, but on 6u37, characters are printed as if "a
b c". Same thing happens with a JList.
On display, they are shown as left justified (same as 1.3 case)
|abc | // 1.3
|a b c| // 6u37
