Linum works fine with mono-spaced fonts, but fails to align its  
numbers to the correct width with variable-width fonts (as supported  
by Emacs 22).  More precisely, it seems to assume that a space " " has  
the width of the widest digit (.e.g, 9).  So, the bug is in linum.el.

(That said, I don't think Emacs provides a way to calculate the width  
of a string given a face without actually showing it somewhere in a  
buffer.  The easiest workaround would be to either adjust the width  
(hack) or to mandate a fixed-width font in the 'linum' face (ugly).)
