   It looks like we are using the start of the glyph to set
angle and position (select one of the chars to see what I mean).
I thought we offset half the glyph width for this calculation so
I'm surprised to see this problem.  I'll try and look at the
code, it's likely a simple thing to fix.

   Please do, I'm very busy so unless it is a trivial fix it is
likely to be forgotten unless it lives in Bugzilla.
