Can confirm the issue with 2.70a release but not with current blender version. Please download builds from and give it a try.

I tried a Buildbot version and the bug is fixed! Thanks!

The Bug is still present when the font size is not equal to 1.0 (also when using basic BFont)
Tested on 2.78c and daily build.
