Description Stephen McConnel 2015-01-14 13:15:33 UTC
The implementation of pango_MeasureCharacterRanges() passes incorrect index values to pango_layout_index_to_pos().  This results in string width measurements being incorrect (usually too narrow).  I have a fix which I'll post shortly as a pull request.

The index values currently used are into the UCS-2 string, but the documentation clearly indicates that they should be indexes into the UTF-8 string.
