Fix for the ClearType pixel junk in GVIM

Update: This doesn't work for fonts that use the right-most column. In fact the issue seems to be cleartype writing outside the leftmost pixel in the bounding box. :-(

Here's a fix for this super-annoying bug (Lucida Console 11, insert spaces before the C to leave a trail of cleartype pixels).
