Probably a font rendering problem. The hints for the ' character may be bad. Or did you change the desktop DPI? If so try changing it back, or try using a different system font?

I know the bug should be fixed by MS of course, but as a work around...

Since it doesn't seem to be in the English version which uses a different font from yours most likely, the bug may be in the font itself, not allowing the proper spacing for the ' character. A different font may not have the problem, but it could also be in the renderer which needs to make a lot of descisions based on characters that preceed and follow each letter alont the way and only shows up with the current system font your version of W7 is using.
