Yes, that fixes the problem! Seems it's caused by using non fixed-width
font as "default font". I don't why emacs would choose a variable-width
font as default font when -fn is not explicitly specified though,
definitely not my "Monospace" font according to fc-match:

$ fc-match monospace
VeraMono.ttf: "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono" "Roman"

Anyway, emacs23 is working for me now, thanks a lot for your help! :)
