I don't know if it makes a difference, but it may help to know what the 
output target is (PDF? AWT? PS?) as well as the JVM/JDK. I've found 
kerning differences in output between AWT (-awt & -print) vs. PDF, that 
is affected (exacerbated?) by the version of the Java Virtual Machine. 
I realize you are writing about line-height, but perhaps (hopefully?) 
this may contribute to a workaround. In either case, perhaps we need to 
update the /compliance.html...
