#3703 closed defect (fixed)

'Random' spurious space characters appearing in labels

Reported by: spod Owned by: mapnik-team@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: mapnik Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Sometimes Mapnik seems to be adding random space characters into the middle of label strings. It seems to happen after the letter 'n' in this (and other nearby place labels): Image grabbed from the OSM slippy map on 22nd April 2011 (just after the tile had been re-rendered) is attached.

Other nearby nodes with the same problem include: (spurious space after 'n') (spurious space inbetween 'S' and before 'an')

See #3651. Seems related to UTF8 characters.
