--- Comment #12 from Christoph Feck <christoph at maxiom.de> ---
Thanks. On your system, Qt indeed returns different widths for different
characters (the first "w" value). This could be a Qt bug, or a
fontconfig/freetype bug.

Konsole cannot be blamed for this. If the Qt font database indicates the font
is monospaced, then Qt should not return different widths. Please report this
issue to the bug tracker of the Qt project via

A workaround in Konsole would be if Konsole rendered each character on its own,
instead of rendering complete text lines, but this would be much slower, and I
doubt Konsole should work around bugs in upstream libraries.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
