Same problem here (Debian GNU/Linux testing, fontconfig 2.2.1-13)
with the “Courier” font (from the gsfonts-x11 package, I believe).
This is probably a fontconfig problem, not an Xft problem, because
I see this in OpenOffice which (in its Debian incarnation) as far
as I know uses the former, but not the latter
