Heya, I'm no expert, but I would guess this is because you're trying to use 
non-fixed width fonts in konsole. Konsole has to have a fixed charachter 
width to render e.g. text based dialog boxes and properly formatted text - if 
the font you're using doesn't have a fixed width, it makes the default width 
the width of the widest charachter and then fits the other charachters into 
this. The solution is simply to use fixed width fonts such as courier, or (my 
personal favourite) 'lucidia console'. Again, I must stress this is just an 
educated guess :)
