Default Font thinks it's taller after TypeTooling

I've noticed a funny thing after adjusting the kerning in a font (Adobe Type 1 Gill Sans), using TypeTool on PC.

All I did was adjust kerning in a handful of pairs and then resave the font. I didn't -- AFAIK -- change anything in the vertical metrics (or anything else).

When I installed the newly kerned version of the font and then opened a Quark file that had been created using the original version of the font, the last line of type disappeared in many of the text boxes.

For example, a text table in Quark had been carefully formatted to the text fit the depth of the cells very precisely. After installing the kerned font, ALL of those text boxes were 2 points too short, and the last line of text had disappeared.

I had to increase the depth of all of the text boxes to get those last lines of text back.

It's not a major problem, but it IS annoying, especially when I have large text tables.

I've submitted a support request to TypeTool, but thought maybe someone here might have an idea about why this is happening.
