This is actually a bug, and a pretty old one. I have commited a fix
in the CVS (both in the STABLE and BRANCH head) to get rid of it.

All global BBOX values are now returned in integer font units, as they should..
Besides, the "ftdump" program has been updated to also display the following:

  - a font's postscript name
  - a font's EM size
  - a font's global BBox

Hope this helps,
