I've noticed this too, though with the tops of letterforms, not the sides 
as you report.

But wait...this isn't a "me too!"

I just noticed the same problem when I switched Eudora's monospace font 
from the default "Courier New" to my preferred "Lucida Console."

Perhaps that font itself bears inappropriate metric information?
