Some artifacts can be seen over some letters of some sizes of the Courier New Bold
font, and even a few in Times New Roman Bold when using LCD subpixel text.
The problem is in the T2K rasteriser's scan conversion when presented with
a contour (outline) which has a zero-width part of the contour - essentially a line
sticking out. "y" is one example. where the "**" is a artifact. From a normal
viewing distance it looks like tiny dots or smudges.
The reason is the outline (contour) looks something like this where "++"
are extra lines that extend beyond where they should and its causing pixels
to be turned on that shouldn't be.

This isn't a "new bug" - its been a latent issue in T2K that shows up in
LCD text because it takes a different scan conversion path in T2K.
