I can notice a clear difference on Ubuntu 9.10 with some additions for
Japanese support, running on MacBook Air (the bug reporter output is
at the end).

Steps to reproduce:

  1. emacs -Q
  2. C-u C-h t j RET
  3. Keep pressing C-v

Then scrolling looks like "waving".  The font used for displaying
Japanese characters is

  xft:-unknown-VL $B%4%7%C%/(B-normal-normal-normal-*-13-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1
  (The above Japanese word means "Gothic")

I think it's not noticeable with the tutorial in English (C-u C-h t a
RET in Step 2).  And on some other system such as X11 on Mac OS X
10.5, I found the difference minor.
