Paul, Henrik,

here we go - later than promised, but not too late for 2.0.0, I hope.

The last lines of RenderAccent() need:

+ if(draw)

     PMoveTo(savedX + width, savedY, mc);

rather than just

     PMoveTo(savedX + width, savedY, mc);

and it took me more than 2 painful hours to get the point! :-(

(Do we have a PR#? I don't find it.)
