Hard to believe. Please document your claim with some cropped

I have noticed the way Adobe Reader renders lines, etc., somewhat variably, but I've always assumed it was Reader, not LilyPond. I've attached an example from a screenshot of 2 different lines of score, magnified in PhotoShop. See the way the bar lines are different thicknesses, cross the staves differently, and even the stave spacing varies?

Doesn't concern me at all, but it does happen.
