I've been trying to configure Emacs/X11 so that it would mostly look the
same as Emacs/Win.  To that end, at least on my machine it seems
necessary to override the DPI setting when starting the server (dpi=96)
and then the line heights become the same.  I've been unsuccessful so
far with getting the run width of the characters the same for any
TrueType font: the "regular" shape for most fonts looks like it has been
boldened — indeed, for Consolas the resulting width of the glyphs is
exactly the same as for the "bold" shape, only with much worse hinting.

Is there anything I can do about that vie configuration or is this a
bug in the font rendering engine?  Using Consolas with rxvt renders the
font correctly, so it may have to do with Gtk also.
