Description of problem:
I have this in my /etc/fonts/local.conf

<!--
  Don't anti-alias small fonts
-->
        <match target="font">
                <test qual="any" name="size" compare="more">
                        <int>6</int>
                </test>
                <test qual="any" name="size" compare="less">
                        <int>12</int>
                </test>
                <edit name="antialias" mode="assign">
                        <bool>false</bool>
                </edit>
        </match>

Every app on my system is anti-aliasing fonts the way I would expect
(ie. not anti-aliasing the small fonts), except for gnome-terminal,
which insists on AA'ing all fonts regardless of size.  It does this
for fonts in the terminal itself.  The menu and titlebars reflect the
fontconfig settings.

Disabling anti-aliased fonts altogether in gnome-font-properties does
prevent the terminal fonts from being anti-aliased.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-terminal-2.6.0-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit /etc/fonts/local.conf and add above configuration
2. start gnome-terminal and set font size to value between 6 and 12

Actual Results:  Fonts of rendered terminal text are anti-aliased

Expected Results:  Fonts of rendered terminal text are anti-aliased

Additional info:

I'm using Lucida Console as my terminal font which very clearly shows
the anti-aliasing, especially at small sizes.  I haven't yet found a
bitmap font that compares to Lucida Console.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
