IMHO, here you are right and Joel is wrong: The described behavior is
obviously unwanted and therefore clearly *is* a bug.

Though in this case it might be better characterized as an "enhancement
request" as seemingly nobody did think about a solution until now and
therefore the requirement "make underlining independant from font" has not
been considered yet. (At least this is what I am thinking when looking at
the problem).

So I would change it to "NEW" and "Enhancement Request" and you should try
to "get it fixed". But be patient: probably a completely new underline
functionality must be implemented, which looks like a rather complex task to
me - but I'm not a dev, maybe there exist simpler solutions/workarounds.
