Not a bug.

Your simply adding on the offset BEFORE drawing, so in effect your drawing the current current character to the location of the next one. Moving it all into the DRAW event...

if ( char_n <= string_length(Message))
    _char = string_char_at(Message, char_n)
    draw_text(char_x, 0, _char);
    char_x += string_width(_char)
    char_n += 1 ;

Works as expected.
