Interesting, is that on Windows, and if so are you using the FON version of Gohufont as well?
Yes, that's on Windows, and yes, it is a *.fon version of the font. Also, I downloaded Gohufont from here http://font.gohu.org/ and the zip package contains 4 *.fon files and I use "gohufont-11.fon".)

Have you downloaded RStudio? Iirc, there is an option to download standalone file where no installation is required.
FYI: RStudio uses chromium framework, if my understanding is correct. You can right-click the code window and choose 'Inspect' to see the html source of the page. You'll see the same "internals" as you see by pressing F12 in chromium-based browsers.

Jibs and everyone else, hello again!

I decided to post some feedback on Dina font here here. I suspect that the font either has some property or, maybe lacks it, which causes misaligned folded code icon “<->” of RStudio and Dina’s bracket glyphs “{}”.
Dina: dina_.png
Gohufont: gohufont11.png

I am wondering whether this misalignment could be fixed.

Thanks mouser. The best way to work with that table is to copy-paste it into some spreadsheet. Then, using "autofilter" (in case of Excel), you can filter fonts, write your own notes, and eliminate fonts one by one to get the perfect one you want.

When I think how much time I wasted trying to find proper fonts for various circumstances, I think Wikipedia definitely needs a page "list of monospaced fonts for programmers."

Currently wiki has just a bunch of pictures https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samples_of_monospaced_typefaces.

There is no way somebody can compare fonts properly using that wiki page. A list is definitely needed there. Visuals don't help at all when you have hundreds of fonts.
If anyone is considering making a list in Wikipedia, here's the manual.

37 fonts compared here: http://codingbeacon.wordpress.com/2014/11/04/the-best-programming-fonts/

I wish someone really started a list of fonts in Wikipedia with ergonomic font properties as presented there.

Other critical font features have to be added, like links to download the fonts, license (free/commercial), etc...
