Moving to GE tracker

This is a known bug/limitation. The Blender default font is different from the BGE default font. I'll keep the report open, but this should be addressed later when Blender UI font change.

A workaround is to load your own font (*.ttf). The same font will be displayed in both Blender as the BGE. But then still there's the issue that in the BGE the size or the spacing is different. It sure would be nice if there would be no difference at all.

I have the same bug in Blender 2.77a.
The fonts are different in both cases: if they are default, if I place there my font.

This is a bad bug, because you cannot know: how it'll look in GE, will it go out of screen or not, will it look good or bad.
