Is this a Bug???????

I have differences in metrics (ascender, descender and external leading)
between windows API and freetype API. Especially with Times New Roman at

Here is what i get:

                     freetype         Windows

12PT    descender:      11              12
            ext. lead.:      1               2

10PT    ascender:       37              38
           descender:       9              10

I also had differences with Arial 12Pt external leading (1 <-> 2). But this
was fixed, when
I upgraded from version 2.0.1 to 2.0.4.
So i think this could be a bug or is there a flag that influences
computation of metrics.
It would be nice if you can help me.
