What is the supposed fix for this between 15.0.865 and 15.0.869?

I can still reproduce this on my 15.0.874.5 / Ubuntu 10.04.

The font seems dynamically loaded (using webfont), and during the page (font?) load
the page has overlapping text.
Once the whole page (or font?) load is complete, sometimes the re-layout is performed
and all the text is displayed properly, but sometimes it won't.

If the page has overlapping text, window resizing won't fix the overlap, but
I have always succeeded to relayout without overlap by opening developer tools
(right click -> inspect element)

I couldn't reproduce on my Linux box with 15.0.865.0.. Have you installed fonts which are used on the page (e.g. adobe-clean-1, adobe-clean-2, Myriad or Mriad Pro) in your machine? What font are you using for "sans-serif" generic font name?

Same bug seen here. I think it has been present for several weeks now.

I noted that if I clicked inspect element - then the page re-rendered, the kerning was slightly wider and the text did not over-spill to the right of the white background. i.e. it rendered perfectly.

  Ubuntu 11.04, Chrome 15.0.874.92beta
  Page zoom 100%, font size medium
  Standard => Times New Roman:16
  Serif => Times New Roman:16
  Sans => Arial:16
  Fixed => Courier New

This bug occurs in my personal blog too. If I reload the page sometimes the font rendering is performed well. It is a bit frustrating.

Using: Chrome 15.0.874.106 (Developer Build 107270 Linux) Ubuntu 10.04

Looks like the root cause is the same of issue 66073. I didn't see these overlaps with my custom build which disable using FT_Get_Advance().
