Well, I am not sure this is really a bug, but I sent a bug report now
anyway. Also, I noticed that the 3 pixels with the 'Bitstream' font I
reported here were due to that font not having box drawing characters,
so those were in fact drawn with another (smaller) font, which lead to
the large line spacing. The issue remains with other fonts, though.
