It looks like you selected the sans-serif variable-width version of the font... Can you try picking something like "Droid Sans Mono"? This kind of problems is expected when variable-width fonts are used as sans serif fonts, some terminal emulators may cope better with this, but monospaced fonts will always work better. – njsg Dec 29 '12 at 21:13

I've solved the issue by removing the ttf-droid font:

sudo pacman -R ttf-droid

You could always have changed the terminal settings to use a monospace font... – njsg Dec 30 '12 at 17:51
