That's hardly TRT.  Even if we'd want to "fix" some fonts, setting
ascent/descent to zero can only be justified if someone would examine
all of the characters of that font and verify that none of then needs
a non-zero value of ascent/descent, or tell us which (smaller) values
are actually needed.

But what I'd really like to do is find out how do other applications
avoid this problem.  I thought that's what we wanted to do in this
thread.
