The line I was thinking of that could be a problem was:

   pText->setDrawMode(osgText::Text::TEXT | osgText::Text::FILLEDBOUNDINGBOX);

If commenting this out helps then it would suggest a depth issue.

The osgText::Style only affects the Text3D implementation, the
osgText::Text implementation ignores it.

So.... I can only guess you must mean something different by "style
with  a depth 0.1", but if so then it's not to do with the OSG, so
really can't guess what you are actually meaning here.

?  You are the one see a problem.

 I'm not aware of any particular issues like you describe when testing
the OSG with examples like osgtext and on screen stats that uses text.

Could you create a small example, such as a by modifying an existing
OSG example like osgtext to reproduce the issue so that others can
test it to see that others can reproduce the issue.
