When FLTK is enabled for Pango, the bounding width of strings is not correctly calculated for FLTK's internal fonts, when used as BOLD and/or ITALIC variant.

This can be seen with unittests: Just change in unittest_text.cxx the first fl_font(FL_HELVETICA, 30) to fl_font(FL_HELVETICA_ITALIC) and (for better visibilty) add a character '/' to the end of the string.

The proof that only FLTK's internal fonts are affected: When mapping the FL_HELVETICA font to e.g. "IArial" then the result is correct.

@Chris: is this still the case in Git master, and does this also apply if FLTK is using Cairo (either on X11 or on Wayland)?

... or can we close this STR?

This seems to be fixed now, either by FLTK or newer Pango libraries. Under Ubuntu 20.04 with Xft+Pango setting and above mentioned test case, fl_text_extents() is shown correctly.

@Chris: Thanks for your feedback. I'm closing the STR now.
