Print to PDF output dodgy on Windows

Before I bug report this, has anyone else had problems printing styled text to PDF on Windows? I’ve been printing multipage reports (lots of formatting, graphics etc) to PDF using LC on a Mac for ages without any problems (well, not this particular problem at least). However, when I try to do the same on Windows it screws up the text formatting if any of the text within a field to be printed includes bolded or italicised words, introducing adjacent non-existent spaces or (equally bad) rending the styled text so that it overlaps the non-styled text on either side of it. I’ve tried changing the font at the stack and field level, thinking that might help but to no avail. If an entire line or field has a style associated with it then there is no problem. It’s only when styles are mixed within a field.
