java version "1.4.2"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2-b28)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-b28, mixed mode)
Problem also seen in 1.4.1 and 1.4.0
Open the font shipped with the JDK in any font viewer program. For
example on Unix/Linux:
xfd -start 9472 -fn -jdk-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso10646-1
This should start xfd on the page containing the characters affected.
0x2500 <==> decimal 9472.
Characters from Unicode 0x2550 to 0x256c appear to be affected.
The xfd program clearly shows the box drawing characters overlapping the
character bounding box. This is also how the affected characters appear
when displayed on Java graphical components.
The problem can be partly seen on Windows Character Map utility. However
this program clips the characters affected. Java graphical components
on Windows do not clip the characters affected - they are displayed
overlapping the character bounding box.
