Yes, it seems that KDE (yakuake, konsole) uses the actual font including its
width but the wrong font is actually displayed. The preview window of the
font selector shows the wrong font, too.

Cf. on how xterm places each char in
its reference bbox.

Hmm, I only see the usual Linux spacing (kerning?) problems.

How about
xterm -fa "xos4 Terminus"

also Arial?

jan@karl:~> xterm -fa "xos4 Terminus"
xterm: Selected font has no non-zero height for ISO-8859-1 encoding

xterm -fa "Terminus" looks like Terminus although:

arial.ttf: "Arial" "Normal"

There was a libfreetype6 update for 13.2 the day before I noticed the
problem. It does not look like the Factory problem of the OP.
