I haven't seen it lately with latest rawhide versions. I'll file a bug if it occurs again
Comment 4 Mathieu Chouquet-Stringer 2009-10-12 10:15:59 EDT

I've created bug #528496 as I'm still seeing font corruption running an up to date rawhide...
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2009-10-14 11:32:47 EDT
William, are you still able to reproduce this with the currently updated Rawihide, please? We would need information requested in the comment 2.
Comment 6 William Washco 2009-10-16 22:02:53 EDT
I am still able to reproduce this with the latest updates. I am adding the files now. Note, the Xorg log file is actually all 6 concatenated together. (0,1,2,3,4,5)
