Bad character spacing (kerning?) in Linux

Hello all,

I've recently started a project in JavaFX and had some trouble with  
inconsistent widths of spaces between characters in Linux. I haven't  
been able to find much useful information and therefore posted a  
stackoverflow question with a screenshot illustrating the problem and  
some simple example code to reproduce the issue. I think it's better  
explained with the picture, that's why I won't repeat myself here and  
point you instead to my question on that page:

One of the members of stackoverflow advised me to ask this question on  
your mailing list. My question is if this behavior is inherent to the  
way JavaFX renders text on Linux. And if there is some  
workaround/setting which I could use to circumvent this issue.

Thanks in advance and regards
Arne Augenstein
