Well, certainly the font affects the problem. I had this set to
`Courier'. However, changing this to `Courier New' solves this for me
and everything renders as I would expect. For the record, using
`Courier', I was getting a wide, solid vertical bar for al the `-'s.
I had believed that I had set it to `Courier New' in the first place, so
unless it should render properly under Courier, this is my error.
