In printed maps the distances between words sometimes becomes too small, so that
words look like they are smashed together. Sometimes they even overlap.
I have attached a sample, which shows how the pdf is rendered on my box.

Steps to reproduce:
1. create new mind map
2. add note with the text "intelligent industry informative"
3. change font to "Dejavu Sans"
4. print to pdf

As far as I know only the Dejavu fonts from http://dejavu-fonts.org/ are affected;
no other font on my system shows similar problems.

The rendering on screen is fine as is the printing preview.

This may be a bug in the Dejavu Fonts, but I have been using these fonts regulary for years
in many other application without any problems, so I suppose this is some problem
in freemind.

Workaround: use a different font
