Description Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2006-10-25 10:26:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Some glyphs in Cyrillic and Latin are actually supposed to look the same. 
These are "a", "c", "e", "o", and "p" with round-tops for example. I am 
attaching the picture which demonstrates that freetype treats them differently 
in dejavu serif font. The Cyrillic counterparts are too tall at some sizes, 
while Latin versions are always ok.  

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

How reproducible:
At some font sizes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. http://lenta.ru which uses Cyrillic serif in a spectrum of sizes with 
occasional (always beautiful) Latin
Actual results:

Expected results:

The bug is definitely in freetype and, maybe, downstream as well. It is too 
bad that fc6 ftview is broken to demonstrate this. but here is a link:

Greek serifs also look bad. Please, 2.2.2 sooner, please!
