Demonstrated here with 4pt Droid Sans Mono (a rather extreme case): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/716853/KIPR%27s%20Instructional%20Software%20System%20-%20cbc2_004.png

  • The line numbers get pushed further left than they should
  • As the line numbers do not shrink with the text's size, the height of the line numbers causes strange spacing issues between each line

While the example screenshot may be a comically extreme case, these effects are still somewhat felt if you try to type with anything smaller than the font used by the line numbers.

Also, if nothing else, the screenshot shows off how impressively legible Droid Sans Mono is at such a small size
