AGS: Texts render incorrectly in some games

Description

In some games the ingame fonts appear strangely compressed and missing some pixels. This can be worked around enabling the "force text antialiasing" option which seems to fix the problem, but also adds a shadow and makes the text harder to read especially on backgrounds with similar color.

This happens with any scaler/size.

I have attached some screenshots with antialiasing disabled and enabled. These are just a sample but there are probably many others affected.

I don't know for sure if it's the same bug, but there are text rendering differences in the freeware version of Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! as well. At least under Linux.
