Doing some more tests (with Cocoa) with different fonts:

with "default" as the font - the result looks odd. I thought this was 
supposed to work for all platforms, but looking at my Linux (gtk2) setup 
this also looks odd if "default" is used. Testing with MMM@@@WWW this 
seems to be an issue with the specific font chosen.

with "Menlo" as the font it looks fine

with "Monaco" as the font the spacing is OK, but bold face is lost.

Ideally "default" for the IDE font would give a sensible monospace font 
for each platform, but this may be more trouble than is is worth.
