NTEmacs courier bold width

I've set my default font to Lucida Console, which seems to work fine
with the latest ntemacs font stuff (thank you, emacs developers!!).

Today I was viewing a TeX file containing the following:

      A \textbf{Metafunction Class} is:

In my buffer, however, it looks like this, in Courier:

      A \textbf{Metafunction Cla} is:

With the string "Metafunction Cla" in bold.  All the characters are
there, as I can see from the wacky overstrike display when I cursor
over them.  When I use Lucida Console bold, it seems that Emacs just
makes the character positions wider, but in this case it looks like
Emacs is stubbornly maintaining a fixed width for all styles of
Courier.  IIRC Courier was the one font whose styles worked correctly
in earlier versions.  Am I mistaken?
