i have had this probelm for so long that at this stage it doesn't even 
bother me any more
danial seems to think it is something to do with DisplaySize in 
xorg.conf. i'm not so sure.
it is has been reported at least twice; see #3970 and #4044

if you remove the font definition from the xml file then the problem 
goes away.
why it works for some fonts and not others is beyond my simple little brain.
