Description of Problem:

I found a kerning error that leads to zero pixel distance between to letters. I
don't know enough about it to reproduce it with just any text, so my sample
text is in the (non-english) language I found the error with.

Consider the following:

MessageBox.Show("Es besteht keine Verbindung zum Server", "kerning test without

MessageBox.Show("Es besteht keine Verbindung zum Server.", "kerning test with

See the screenshot please.

It seems that the period at the end of the string determines the space between
the letters e and r in the last word "Server". The string with a period has
wrong kerning. Though the overall space seems to be sufficient for correct
kerning, the r was moved one extra pixel to the left and now touches the e.

I hope you see the point in that ;)

Additional Information:

Tested only on Windows. But I come along this error quite often with different
strings and in different winform controls.
