      Ok, I can see this problem with Bitstream Vera Sans Mono size 14 (and
      DejaVu 14 also) as well and I'm still on 10.5.6. I'll see what can be
      done about it.

      The best I can suggest for the moment is to use another font. I've
      been using Inconsolata size 16 myself lately and I think it is very
      nice at largish sizes. It also comes with an underscore that isn't
      way too low (as is the case with the Bitstream Vera fonts). Or if you
      really like Bitstream Vera you should see if you can get your hands on
      a copy of Panic Sans (which is Vera with a fixed underscore as far as
      I can tell).
