I started Emacs like this:

./src/emacs -Q -fn '-*-Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-Medium-r-*-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-*-*' 

I maximzed it by clicking the window manager's "maximze" button.

I noticed that the columns weren't lined up -- for example, in the
second-to-last column, whose entries are the word "bignums", the word
"bignums" in the last row appears seven characters to the left of the word 
above it.

But start emacs with almost the same command line, but a different size of the 
same font, like this

./src/emacs -Q -fn '-*-Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-Medium-r-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*' 

(i.e., 16 instead of 15)

... and the columns all line up as I expect.

If emacs crashed, and you have the emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/local/src/emacs-cvs/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
