Screenshot of gnome-terminal w/ old VLGothic* packages.

I faced the same problem and I'm still using old VLGothic-* packages.
On this update, font size of terminal get smaller and width of ideograms (like
● and □) become wrong.
In older VLGothic-*, their cosmetic width is hankaku (1/2 of height, like
English alphabet) and its actual width (used to calculate the position of next
character) is also hankaku.
But in new vlgothic-*, their cosmetic width become zenkaku (same as height,
like CJK character) but its actual width is treated as hankaku.
Please compare the screenshots, I put ideograms without space in left side, and
with 1 space between each characters in right side.
