I didn't look at the code, but I don't think this is true: on my Emacs,
lines containing only "." or containing only "l" have exactly the same
height, as I would expect. Also, lines containing only a new line
character (thus no printable characters) still have the same height as
lines with content, as expected.

Are you sure Emacs does not consider the maximum ascent and descent of
each _font_ contained in a line and not of each _glyph_?
