When enable bytecode_interpreter and   subpixel_rendering, this problem
Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-03-12 19:45:42 EDT
So, the first shot happens with default rawhide freetype?
Comment 4 sangu 2007-03-12 20:35:15 EDT
First shot uses package with bytecode_interpreter and subpixel_rendring.
Comment 5 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-03-12 21:18:58 EDT
Ok then.  This is a known regression in freetype 2.3.2.  Upstream knows about it
and is working on a new release.  I'll push it in rawhide when it's out.
