Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit to download old versions for testing.)

None to my knowledge.
This has also occurred on my computer, I use the same font style, color etc.
I had a similar issue awhile back and was told it had to do with DM only supporting monospace fonts.
I know what causes this, and have seen it myself with Droid Sans Mono. Due to the current design of the code editor, it's not an easy fix.

The problem comes from the way ClearType bleeds fonts over outside of their normal boundaries. When the editor has a color change, it draws a background rectangle first, which erases the part of the letter that bleeds over. This happens on wide characters like M's and W's, which push to the edge of their allotted space. This is why you see a blue line; it's ClearType doing that.

To fix this properly I'd need to figure out a different way of drawing the background rect, which also impacts selections.
Is there any chance that this will be fixed in any release or is it just going to be ignored?
Yeah, there's a chance of a fix, it just isn't a high-priority issue. Deferred reports still do get looked at.
All right, that's good to hear.
