  bold tabs are narrower than narrow tabs

Status in “tomboy” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: tomboy

  1. Open tomboy
  2. Create a new note
  3. Press tab and type 'some text'
  4. Press enter, press ctrl+b, press tab and type 'some more text'

  Actual behaviour: You will notice that the tab character in bold is
  narrower than the regular tab character, and therefore the beginning
  of the text on those two lines does not align.

  Expected behaviour: there should be no difference in size between
  regular and "bold" tabs.  The text should align.

  This explains a mystery I've had for a long time: why sometimes <tab>
  inserts less space than at other times.
