I do not get that for the first character, but here, it sometimes 
occurs in the middle of text. The rectangle is not an artifact, it is 
a real zero-width glyph representing a funny Unicode character that is 
part of the text object - the FreeType font manager is asked for 
characters like ffe2 ("full width not sign") and other special high 
values, which are not defined in most fonts.
