Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131218
[RHEL4] Characters get truncated in new pango
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:50:53 EDT
Description of problem:
With pango 1.5 in the ja_JP locale, most of the charcters at the end
of each line are truncated. Also, changing the style on the same line,
like in between regular style and bold, there is no spacing between
those glyphs, which is not very ideal.
Downgraded pango on my machine from 1.5 to 1.4 and the difference
between the xchat screenshot varies quite a lot. Please refer to the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start xchat in the CJK locale
Characters get truncated.
Similar to pango 1.4 screenshot

xchat with pango 1.4.0-2

xchat with pango 1.5
This looks rather like a xchat bug, but I'll investigate.
Actually the vertical and horizontal spacing problems are
The vertical spacing problem is a Pango bug:
The horizontal spacing problem is an xchat bug (bug 132527)
What is the status on the pango problem?
Still problematic in today's rawhide, confirmed in LANG=zh_CN.UTF8
Should be fixed with pango-1.6.0-4

xchat with pango-1.6.0-4
Noticed some of the lines are still not displayed properly. Could you
please verify if this vertical spacing problem (Pango) bug or
horizontal spacing problem (xchat) bug?
I was testing with xchat-2.4.0-3, btw. :)
Is there any reason you would think that was a vertical spacing
problem? The trunctation seems to be all horizontal.
OK, I will update bug 132527 then.
