Screenshot of the problem.

All greek letters are too close to fraction bar, especially when compared to fractions with digits. It might be that i'm missing something, but my current workaround for this is 

phantom 1 %pi phantom 1

Comment 10 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2018-10-07 10:08:17 UTC
Still there in current master updated and built today under Ubuntu 18.04 x86-64.

try this formula : { 4 X } over %pi

Workaround : add a small space before the Greek letter, for example:

{ 4 X } over {`%pi}

In 7.0.1 can't see it on linux (Fedora official rpm).
I remember this also happened in previous versions.
So I guess it has been correcterd.

No it is still there, at least on Windows builds, you'll see difference with a mixed font formula like

1 over %alpha + 1 over {%alpha + 1}

Calculating the nodes "SmBinVerNode" results in different "nDenomDist" values when the node holds OpenSymbol font, versus a mixed font node holding both OpenSymbol & Liberation Serif.
