GNU octave legend font problem

GNU Octave has a problem in handling variable-width fonts in the plot legend. It seems that when Octave calculates the spacing between symbols (lines) and texts, it just take the fixed-width of Courier rather than the variable-width of Helvetica or Arial.

The following sites also reports that it was necessary to use fixed-width fonts to align in the legend.
