bold tabs are thicker than regular tabs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomboy

1. Open tomboy
2. Create a new note
3. Press tab and type 'some text'
4. Press enter, press ctrl+b, press tab and type 'some more text'

Actual behaviour: You will notice that the tab character in bold is narrower than the regular tab character, and therefore the beginning of the text on those two lines does not align.

Expected behaviour: there should be no difference in size between regular and "bold" tabs. The text should align.

This explains a mystery I've had for a long time: why sometimes <tab> inserts less space than at other times.
