[Bug-barcode] PostScript issues

I've been using the Barcode library/program at my job for a few months, with great success, with one issue.  Certain letters in the output are causing letters to become squished together.  For example, "Wi" usually ends up with the i somewhere inside the W.  For humans, this is somewhat useless.

I've isolated the problem.  The software specifies the location for certain letters:

    [(W)   63.31  10.00  0.00]
    [(i)   72.19  10.00  0.00]

And this is being taken a little too heavily by my printers.  They're placing the letters there.  Zint, for example, defines the text as just a string, without specifying location, and it seems to work without a hitch (only reason I'm not using Zint is because it doesn't seem to play nice with the output I need).
