Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

This is 
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008072820 Firefox/3.0.1
on Ubuntu 8.04.1

Huge fonts are render in such a way that several starting characters
from a line are drawn on the same place without any offset!

I made a simple page to demonstate the bug:
