I haven't dug into this at all, but I note that we're using FT_Set_Char_Size
which sets the size in points (not pixels), relative to a DPI.

Is it possible the default DPI changed? (72 vs 96 is the usual suspect, and
at UI sizes that's often just 1 or 2 pixels different once you consider

Should we be using FT_Set_Pixel_Sizes instead?
