Truetype font not recognized as fixed-width

I'm trying to use the mikachan font 
(, but for some reason X refuses to 
recognize the font as being fixed-width and thus I cannot use it in the 
applications I want to use it in.

Windows recognizes the font as fixed-width without any hitch. I am totally 
clueless as to where even start and try to work around this. Where is the bug 
in - freetype, X, xft?

Any hints much appreciated,
