Description Stephen Rasku 2000-12-02 18:01:33 EST
If I do a man page on a Root Console it will display an upside down
exclamation point instead of a hyphen.  The default font for Root Console
is large and bold.  If I change it to any other size, it displays
correctly.  If I change it back to large it is no longer bold but it
displays the hyphen correctly.

This raises a couple of questions:

1. Why can't I get back to a bold font?
2. Why does the bold font display hyphens correctly?

Can't reproduce this on a Rawhide system (KDE 2.0.1).

Neither can I.  CLOSING.
