Description Rudi Chiarito 2006-02-27 20:03:39 UTC
Description of problem:
Something seems to be wrong with text rendering. I didn't notice this on FC4. It
might have something to do with Cairo. I am setting the component to Cairo, but
feel free to reassign as necessary.

I am attaching a picture which shows how glyphs touch each other. It happens
around underlined keyboard shortcut characters. Look for example at the text
'Subpixel'. I am using Nimbus Sans, but I have seen the same with other fonts as

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This is a FC4 system updated to FC5T3 and then today's Rawhide updates.

Reassigning pango bugs to Behdad.

Seems to be fixed in Raw Hide now, can't tell which version of which package
solved the issue.
