Bug Description

The monospaced regular capital M's left leg is slighly narrower than its right leg and the outer edge is made by a different number of points.

In some sizes and settings this is visible. Please make the M symmetrical.

This is the best monospaced font there is, so every detail is important!
I think this applies also to other variants and to the non monospaced version, but I haven't checked.

See also: bug #651680 ("Outline: 'M' (Regular+Bold) not quite symmetrical"). It was argued that this was optically intentionally; but as it keeps coming up it would probably be best just to fix it.
