The TextRenderer.DrawText always uses the TranslateTransform (it shouldn't do it unless you give it the option TextFormatFlags.PreserveGraphicsTranslateTransform)

Small example included. On Windows you'll get on two lines AA and BB (AA\nBB), on Mono you'll get everything on the same line overlapped (BB "over" AA)

namespace WindowsFormsApplication8
    static class Program
        static void Main()
            Application.Run(new Form1());

    public class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()
            this.Paint += this.Form1_Paint;

        private void Form1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
            e.Graphics.TranslateTransform(0, 10);

            TextRenderer.DrawText(e.Graphics, "AA", this.Font, new Point(0, 0), Color.Black);
            TextRenderer.DrawText(e.Graphics, "BB", this.Font, new Point(0, 0), Color.Black, TextFormatFlags.PreserveGraphicsTranslateTransform);
