Mozilla line height too large in gtk2 Xft version

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Description of problem:
The line height in the gtk2 xft enabled version of Mozilla 1.7.3 seems
too large -- especially when compared to the gtk2 xft version of
Mozilla for Red Hat 9. There seems to be an additional 9 pixels in
height per line. I'll attach screen shots to demonstrate. The
problem does not exist with non-gtk2 xft enabled versions of mozilla,
so the problem must be with gtk2 and/or xft.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gtk2-2.4.14-2.fc3, gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3, mozilla-1.7.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Mozilla in RH9
2. Load Mozilla in FC3
Actual Results: Line height in Mozilla FC3 is ALWAYS larger.
Expected Results: Line height should have been equal.

Mozilla 1.7.2 in RH9
Notice the height in the green table background for the article title. See how
the hyperlink touches the bottom of the table and how there are only 3 pixels
of height from the top of the capital letters to the top of the table.

Mozilla 1.7.3 in FC3
Compare the height in the green table background for the article title to the
RH9 screenshot. Notice how there are 2 pixels of whitespace from the bottom of
the hyperlink to the bottom of the table row. The problem is much more
pronounced on the top. There are 8 pixels of height between the top of the
capital letters and the top of the table. Making a net difference of 8 pixels
per line between the two versions.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Reporter, could you confirm please, that this bug still could be reproduced with
the updated release of the supported version of Fedora (FC5, FC6, or F7)?
If yes, please, reopen this bug with additional information how it is possible
to reproduce this bug.
In meantime, I have to close this bug as CANTFIX, because it is reported against
not longer supported distribution.
Thanks in advance.
