23.0.60; Poor font rendering example

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.0.60 (gnu/linux)

1. Using the xft font backend, I start Emacs like this:
   emacs -Q -fn "-b&h-Luxi Sans-normal-normal-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-0-iso8859-1" 

2. I type M-: (insert (propertize "I think this is poor rendering of `i'" 'face 
'(:weight bold :height 1.2)))

This is the result I get:

Note the lower-case i's look like the upper case I.  If I increase or
decrease the size by face-remapping, the lower case i's look like they
should. (I use b&h-Luxi Sans for variable-pitch face, which with the
above face attributes defines info-title-3, which is how I noticed
this rendering problem.)
