Ideas:
  • Did you change the dpi?
  • Did you try running 4.0.5 with the new font in the XP VM?
  • It may be that Windows 10 has introduced some other incompatibility
  • FAangband (current version or 1.1.6) might do some things differently, if you're experimenting it might be worth looking at how well they work
  • I really don't think I changed anything to do with fonts going from 3.5 to 4.0

I have spent quite a bit of time struggling with Windows fonts over the years, and sometimes just had to give up and hope someone else fixed it. Not to discourage you
