I'm still seeing this issue in urxvt (reproduce with
`urxvt -fn "xft:M+ 2m"`), and the character width data shown in
`xfd -fa "M+ 2m"` is still incorrect as I described
in my original report. You're right that gnome-terminal doesn't
seem to have the issue; presumably it's ignoring the incorrect widths.
Also, the subject line of your reply is wrong; the letter 'm' is fine,
it's the letters 'B', 'D', 'P', 'R', and 'y' that have incorrect
character width data and aren't displayed correctly in the font
