Description of problem:
When the default font for the Terminal font is set to the Bitstream
Vera Sans Mono, the lowercase 'm' character is chopped off at the end
of the 'm'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fedora -> Preferences -> Font
2. In font preferences, change the Terminal Font to "Bistream Vera
Sans Mono", with point size 9
3. Apply, then start gnome-terminal
4. Type someting with an 'm' in it, and take a look (eg. vim <space> -
space so cursor is away from m, and viewable)
Actual Results: 'm' at the end, is chopped off
Expected Results: Normal display of 'm'
Capital 'M' works without issues. Tried in xterm, and the 'm' issue
did not apply. Neither did it apply in a konsole. This seems to only
be a gnome-terminal issue, with the font.
bitstream-vera-fonts-1.10-4 in Rawhide seems to solve this problem,
and I've verified it on PPC, but I'm not sure if its verifiable on
x86. If 10-4 works on x86 and fixes this bug, I think an update for
FC2 users (stable) needs to go out
Works on x86, rawhide latest, can an FC2 update be released?
Fixed with the pango update that Owen pushed out - pango 1.4.1 on 7th
