Thanks for the extensive set of examples!

It looks like one common problem: MrEd miscalculates the width of
individual characters. Where characters overlap, it's because MrEd
draws one character at a time. Where button and message labels are
clipped, it's because MrEd measures the text and Windows draws it. And
where everything looks right, Windows both measures and draws.

Still, I'm not able to reproduce this problem with any font on my
system. Do you happen to know what font is used to draw Japanese
characters in DrScheme buttons on your machine? (I see that it's
different than the font used for DrScheme buttons on my machine.)
