IIRC, Michael Everson has stated (somewhere!) that Everson Mono is not actually 
monospaced because of issue relating to floating diacritics, or something along 
those lines. Most of the individual characters have the same advance width, but 
the monospace bit is not set in the font itself.

Check through the archives of this mailing list; I'm pretty sure that's where I 
ran across this detail. The archives aren't huge (low traffic list) so it won't 
take a great deal of your time to read through them and bring yourself up to 
date on all matters Everson Mono-esque.
