The text run is not caching character widths; the s_pCharAdvance is
a buffer which is filled with character advances by ::_draw(); the
advances are not necessarily same as the character widths, in the
case of the combining characters the advance depends on the base
character and can be greater or lesser.
When I was writing this code, I was debating whether to make the
buffer non-static and refresh it inside ::refreshDrawBuffer(),
improving spead but adding (sizeof(sint) * run length) memory
requirenment, or whether make it static and recalculate it inside
::_draw(). I decided for the latter, and it does not seem to have
serious impact on the performance.
