Public bug reported:

I use Konsole 4:4.6.90+repack-0ubuntu1 under Ubuntu Oneiric x86_64 (upgraded from Natty)
I use Terminus font of size 11 (Xorg DPI detected as 128,121)
I noticed that when the line starts from 'thin' character like 'I' or '1' which has some empty space on the left of its bitmap, the line is displayed shifted by 1 pixel to the left.
The test case is following :

for z in 1 2 I 3 l
do echo $z'|||' 
done

Run this and notice vertical lines are shifted by 1 pixel left when printed after 1, I and l.
Also you can notice the rest of line shifting left or right by 1 pixel  when you move cursor through it, or when you change highlighted text selection.

On another system, with Natty konsole package v. 4:4.6.2-0ubuntu1 , lines are straight and not shifted.
(Terminus 11, DPI  88,89)

Reporting this to Launchpad, being voluntary Oneiric tester. Please forward this upstream if needed.
