I am currently looking through old GNUstep mails and found this one. The
behaviour you describe used to be a problem caused by GNUstep using the
wrong font metrics. I never understood why this issue resulted in this
specific output. Now I haven't seen such output in GNUstep for years.
Either you have a very special system or your GNUstep installations was
somehow screwed up.

You mention CVS in your mail, GNUstep has switched to SVN years ago. Did
you really use the old version? If not, which backend are you using. If
you don't know it will be art, the default backend. Could you please try
with xlib as well?
And yes, if the problem persists, send in a bug report. The bug tracking
system is much more reliable than the mailing list.
