The points didn't stick out anymore in version 8, but I agree with you 
anyway that the sharp points weren't "nice on the eyes". Also, it wasn't 
square anymore when I fixed the corners to line-up with the rest.

If you want to read/edit the fig file, you can install xfig. It's a very old 
basic X11 vector drawing program and I think most (every?) Linux/*BSD 
distro carries it.

I fixed the zig-zag pattern, brought it back to the previous shape (square) 
and removed the sharp points. I also fixed the letter M that had a bug in 
the upper-corners if you zoomed in a lot.

As for the font, it's not a pre-defined font I have on my system, but I have 
drawn the letters by hand :)
