I already did attach them to the original report. What boxes I mean
should be clear from the png where the text exceeds the surrounding

I used exporting by extension. So whatever is the default png export
filter or *.png.

I didn't do anything fancyfull so it should be all default font, size,
weight. It does seem to only happen to one kind of box (that I used so
far), the UML Large Package. See provided sample files.
