#1141 Smashed text in notes when printing with dejavu fonst

Printing (23)

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

Freemind: 1.0.0 RC 3
Java: 1.7.0_21
OS: Windows 7 64bit
