I see it a bit bolder, but it can due to the rendering mode. Try modifying
the font sharpness, or try another font. I suggest you Sans to check this,
because of its thin forms may help to see if there's any problem.

Also, install Avantgarde or aonther "slim" font (you can grab them free
from, put them on ~/.fonts, re-login and see if the problem
persists. Doin' it the science way! :P
