It depends on the font used and the antialiasing settings of the system.
I imagine you could reproduce it on X in the emacs-unicode-2 branch with
the xft font backend enabled, some tinkering with /etc/fonts/fonts.conf
(or whatever the fontconfig configuration file is on your system) and
Courier New or a similar poorly designed truetype font.

I can only reproduce the problem with Courier New and "standard"
antialiasing. Switching to Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, or changing to
"Cleartype" sub-pixel antialiasing (on and LCD screen) both make the
problem disappear.
