I use  XftTextExtents8 (display,font,(FcChar8 
*)str,strlen(str),&glyphInfo); instruction to compute width of string str

Here are values of glyphInfo.width with following strings:

String                glyphInfo.width
"e"                    9
" e" (leading space)   13
"e " (trailing space)  9
"e e"                  22

So it seems thattrailing spaces are not taken into account to compute 
string width.

is it a bug ?
