Bottom portion (descenders) of characters become cropped on OS X (see screenshot 1 attached which shows a detail of Calc's sidebar. The bug is critical because it causes wrong positioning of calc frozen panes for spreadsheads saved with AOO. Furthermore it doesn't look good.
Cause are rounding issues within "vcl/osx/ctfonts.cxx". I will submit a patch with reference to this bug ID in brief. Attached screenshot 2 shows the result.

This is not critical at all. Please don't over-prioritize your own bugs - ideally please don't prioritize your own bugs at all as it's impossible to be objective.
Neither of the listed reasons for being "critical" are objectively relevant in making it actually critical. It has really no impact on creating professional quality work from what I can tell and "it doesn't look good" is not enough to make it critical.
Setting to normal (default). Thanks! Also thanks for trying to patch it.
