That looks much like bug #33154
filed about Linux/X11.  Nothing specific to winemac
-- at least the "shifted by a few pixels" part, I'll have to check again about
the "varying fonts" issue (boldface might result from shifting by one pixel).

I believe Daniel Jelinski expressed the issue well in #32334:

Somehow it feels strange that Wine's built-in notepad application would
depend on a metrics-compatible Tahoma font.  Compatible or not, Wine should
probably compute sizes aka. extents consistently.
