AFM files are somewhat readable.  My guess is that
the bounding boxes are wrong.  You could try making
a document with each glyph drawn huge (100pt) and a 
rectangle around it based on the width given by stringWidth.
This would tell you if the width declared in the AFM
file matches the width it should be, i.e. if it's our bug
or the font.
