Description of problem:
With Red Hat 7.2, turning on anti aliased fonts in KDE results in "Arioso 10
default" as being used for all fixed with fonts. You can't change it, and Arioso
10 is REALLY hard to read. I've encountered this on many systems. A Google
search for "Arioso Red Hat KDE" turns up many people
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installing Red Hat 7.2 incl. KDE 2.2.1 from scratch with GNOME and KDE
installed - Everything ok using "Anti-Aliased" fonts. Use KDE
2. USE KDE, Use AA
3. Restart X
Actual Results: Arioso 10 default is now the fixed font. You can't change it
(it resets itself back to Arioso 10). Arioso 10 is really hard to read.
Expected Results: It should use "Courier" or something as the fixed width font.
It should allow me to change the font.

Please try checking if a bug has been reported earlier.
This has been reported several times before (#58405, #40329, #39628, #37494).
See the earlier reports for more information, including what causes it and how
to work around it.
I recommend the workaround from #58405 (it's clean) over the one from #40329
(which is a crude and ugly hack).
