XP SP2 font bug

I installed XP SP2. I noticed a strange behaviour in 2 machines. I have standard antialiasing turned on

1. notepad
2. set font to arial 18, italic
3. enter the world ojojojojoj
4. do you see the big?

the same happens in IE if you use a font big enough, italics. can somebody else validates this bug?

I see the big ojojojoj, but no bug.

Resolved -> no repro

I retested and it doesn't happen always. Eg. after screen resolution change. It only happened for me in 1152x864 resolution. ANyway, I will report to MS, and turn off antialiasing. Grrhh.

Maybe you have to recompile the kernel of Windows XP.
