it has been posted to the bug tracker as


and jean found out that the problem was related to a difference in the
arial font installed:

The Arial font used are different on Windows and Ubuntu. The Arial font
file is 761kb on Windows, only 270kb on Ubuntu. Ubuntu ship a very old
version of Arial (2.82) whereas Windows 7 ships version 5.10. Copy
Windows Arial font to your Ubuntu installations. *DO NOT* copy the
Ubuntu version to Windows fonts directory. 

have a good night
