Thank you Arthur for your reply,

Looking at your result it is indeed ok. On my laptop (MacOS) and my brother’s (Ubuntu), the described problem occurs. -- I thought already, it is related to the font itself. I tried in the meantime Liberation-Regular-Sans which gives the right result.

Thank you for your input!
