If you want it to consider all spaces in the <text> element literally,
then you should set xml:space="preserve" on the element:

    ("http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace", "xml:space", "preserve");

However, it seems that spaces at the start and end of the element don’t
contribute to the bounding box, even if xml:space="preserve".  That
seems to be a bug, so I’ve filed this:


Replacing it with a non-breaking space (&#x160;) doesn’t seem to help
either, unfortunately.
