For the record:
Should be fixed now both in 4.5 branch and trunk, now uses whole string to 
calculate width, not just one digit (which gets rounded to full pixel count, 
so multiplying gets wrong values, bah, why does QFontMetrics::maxWidth() 
deliver pixel number at all...).

Oh, seems not all do, e.g. Konsole ignores (unless I did not find something 
like "Use system font").
But still this effect would be wanted for Okteta, as there is no other way to 
adjust the font used.

No longer, commited a fix and backported it (so is in 4.5.2).
Just doesn't play nicely if the view is not at 100 % zoom. No idea how to fix 
that with the current code. Zooming should be done differently in the future 
anyway, so might not fix that.
Hm, forgot about all the tool tables which also use a fixed font, need to do a 
fix to them tomorrow, then, too.
