I can see a stray dot on the left and column of pixels on the far
right. The letter widths look OK to me. I tried opening it in
another GIF viewer and it looks fine (but curiously missing a couple
of frames there), so this does indeed appear to be a bug in libnsgif
I can see the truncated letter widths in NetSurf r12793. An extracted
copy of what/gif however does display correctly in NetSurf. The
problem may be related to scaling. Below is some minimal source, try
it at different NetSurf window widths.
