In "emacs -nw", Emacs doesn't perform layout, it just writes the
characters using stdio functions.  It's the terminal emulator that
performs layout.

Knowing that doesn't help in fixing Emacs behavior.

It's in xdisp.c:x_produce_glyphs.  Emacs updates the line's ascent and
descent as it processes each character for display, based on the data
it gets from the font used by the face of that character.  Later in
display_line, the height of each screen line is determined:

          row->ascent = max (row->ascent, it->max_ascent);
          row->height = max (row->height, it->max_ascent + it->max_descent);
          row->phys_ascent = max (row->phys_ascent, it->max_phys_ascent);
          row->phys_height = max (row->phys_height,
                                  it->max_phys_ascent + it->max_phys_descent);
          row->extra_line_spacing = max (row->extra_line_spacing,

This code is device independent, so GTK doesn't come into play here.

Thanks in advance for any solutions you might find and/or suggest.
