--- Comment #13 from Pierre Ossman <pierre-bugzilla at ossman.eu> 2011-11-24 12:36:28 EST ---
Sorry, but I'm not willing to accept that everything's peachy.

I'm willing to concede that the fix in freetype is correct and the world is a
much more beautiful place now that this bug is squashed (I know nothing about
TrueType internals). But if you look at how U+2551 from DejaVu Mono is
rendered, then something is obviously off.

This glyph is supposed to precisely span one line, so that it will seamlessly
connect with an identical glyp above and below it. In reality, it gets a two
pixel overlap at 10pt at 96 dpi.

If you do not feel that freetype is not to blame, then feel free to pass the
buck elsewhere. Either to DejaVu for giving incorrect metrics, or Pango for
using freetype incorrectly.
