cursor positioning issue in c-style comment blocks

This happens on 2/3 computers I own, and I can't figure out how to stop it.

When I create a function annotation, or comment anywhere with /** ... */,
the cursor shows as being earlier on the line that it actually is.  Has anyone
else experienced this? Does anyone know how to fix it?

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on all the systems.

Hi jonathon,

Please read comments for this and linked tickets:

In short -- devs have no real clue why it's happening:

Unfortunately we don't have enough information on why the problem occurs at some environments. I.e. everything works fine most of the time but sometimes customers complain about that.

It looks like you have exactly the same problem as IDEA-54110 - default monospaced font sometimes is incorrectly processed by JVM

Thank you so much, that has been driving me crazy. Changing the font was all it took.
