I have a height scaling factor of 1.0001 in my configuration file, and
the only reason I even bothered to implement the kerning patch in the
first place was to work around a rendering issue that crops up with Deja
Vu Sans mono; see [1] for more information. In my Xresources file I have
"xterm*scaleHeight: 1.0000001" to fix the issue in xterm. To make the
underscore show up, I need the line height to be exactly one pixel
larger, so I pick a value just large enough to make it round up no more
than one pixel.
