line spacing problem

This problem is very old but I only started to bother now since
more serious problems seem to be OK - well at least for now -
who knows what will happen when the next tar ball is ready to
be released ;-)
This still happens with cvs010626 with a VB3 program designed
to work on NT4/W2k down to Win3.1.
In a text window the Helvetica font appears to have a normal body
height but the EmHeight is far taller. So the line spacing is
far too wide.
Interestingly Helvetica is mapped to Arial in this window.
With mappings from MS Sans Serif to Helvetica, MS Serif to
Helvetica and System to Helvetica like in other parts
of the window everything is OK.
CreateFontIndirectW returns with (-13 0 0 0) which seems to
be OK. GetTextExtentPoint16 and -32A return a font height
of 14 point, which is also OK. Anyway the font is displayed
far too high.
The problem is the same with managed or desktop.
I tried to map TTF-Arial to Arial with the same result.
Only with this mapping the tooltips are not readable anymore.
Tried other fonts as well - no cure.
