The line you refer to in the PDF is not horizontal. The text matrix has
  a small amount of rotation applied to it in the PDF. I suggest filing
a bug report for the extra spaces. As far as I can tell it is not a

Can someone else confirm this issue no longer exists with current development builds?

I don't know of any extra spaces (should be elaborated more, preferably with an annotated screenshot), but I notice the vertical shift in the letters.
