This is not the font problem. That's because mplayer doesn't respect `charspace' for OSD
With default settings subfont gives charspace==-8. That's quite a lot.
Three solutions:
  - handle this as a special case with subfont
  - modfiy mplayer to treat all characters equally (other existing progress bar sybmols
would be 3 pixels narrower)
  - extend font.desc syntax: use four numbers to describe each character:
      + character bitmap start
      + character bitmap end
      + character origin
      + character width
     Bitmap can be wider than character width because of blurs, outlines or character
     This would allow to throw away some black pixels, make *.raw files over 10% smaller
and processing faster.
