deep apologies if this is not "major" - it's very major for me, as it screws up the onscreen display of text !
seriously - sorry if it's been assigned to far to high a level !! (Andreas Raab ? !)

No worries. We don't assign all that much value to the severity field and it is easily changed if it mattered. 'andreas' is indeed Andreas Raab but I suspect he is a little too busy to monitor the issues here right now. Sadly I have to admit this mantis is not very well monitored at all, the community has just never developed the consistent habit of using it.
If you have not already I highly recommend that you email the squeak-dev mailing list with this report and put the image up on imgur.com or some other image posting site so it is easily viewable. Also include a link to this issue and actually I guess they could look at the image here. But I think you might find more people actually looking at the image and becoming intrigued enough to look into it if is linked to directly in your email.

|I tried this on Linux and get the same results, so it is not platform dependent. I also tried on an old Squeak 3.6 image (also on Linux), and got similar results except that the default font is different, with Squeak 3.6 using a StrikeFont(NewYork10 12) and Squeak trunk using a StrikeFont(Bitmap DejaVu Sans 9 14). So I suspect that this is not so much a bug as an existing limitation of the Pen class when drawing these fonts.|

See also the squeak-dev discussion which explains that the algorithm is just too much naive to work...
It did never work, and is even worse now with font anti-aliasing.
