It's not a matter of the coordinate system.  The Cocoa line drawing
functions draw each line so that it's centered on its path.  If the
width of the line is an odd number of pixels, anti-aliasing can then
make it look wider than expected.

In my (limited) experience, this effect is only noticeable when
drawing straight vertical or horizontal line segments.  In the present
case, shifting by 0.5 pixels has no discernable affect on the
appearance of the underwave.
