Bug in text kerning, gets wider with each letter

Description

osmarender seems to have a bug in the text placement when it is apparently kerning on a short way; the beginning of the string is very tightly spaced and gets wider with each letter:

It is especially noticeable with the cul de sac in the center (Böhmerwaldstraße), and happens with both the street name and the attribution.

This seems to be inkscape bug. Batik and Opera renders text correctly.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

It looks like only straight streets with one line segment are affected by this inkscape bug. These streets used to be unnecessary rendered as bezier curves. I've modified lines2curver.pl to leave such streets as normal lines and kerning seems to be normal again.

Please reopen the bug if you find some bad kerning on street consisting of more than one line segment.
