Use any propartional font.

Then SynEdit adds the charwidth data to force it into the grid.

The issue does not happen with a monospaced font.
So most people will not noticed. (Proportional fonts look real ugly in 
SynEdit, due to extreme x-spacing between all chars)

Was that always the case? I never noted before..
Ok I very seldom use it. But I test every now and then, and since I 
build via the toos menu, I do use the menu whenever I test.

And now it is so extreme, there is no way I would not have noticed.
