during the past few weeks there were xserver and firefox updates and it
seems that they have made firefox render some monospace-fonts slightly

The following image displays a part of a board which has not been
modified for years:

CSS-definition for the displayed text (before _and_ after change `x'):

	font: normal 13px monospace;

I tried to display the page with a new firefox-profile (rm -rf .mozilla)
but it looked the same.



	I don't have a clue about the font-family used in the example
	since xfontsel is still a total mystery to me. However, I do
	know that `monospace' is just something like an alias and not a
	real font.
