margins ignored in formattedHeight for 8?

Is 8 ignoring margins in calculating formattedHeight?

Placing a single line of text into a field, which is Helvitica Bold size 9,
and margins of 0,6,0,0, it manages to return a formattedHeight of 7 when
checking . . .

uhh . . . .

Am I missing something here?

This worked for years in 5/7 for years; now I am having to add the
topMargin explicitly, with timers (if the seconds > something then
breakpoint) to remember to take them back out.
