Description of problem:
I installed qt2-2.3.1-8 and Opera 6.03.  I exported QT_XFT=True and then
launched Opera.  Fonts were not anti-aliased.  Since it had worked on RedHat
7.3, I down-graded qt2 with qt2-2.3.1-3, which was shipped in 7.3.  Now fonts
are anti-aliased.  But the application frequently crashes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install qt2
2. Install Opera 6.03
3. export QT_XFT=True
4. Launch Opera

Actual Results:  Fonts are not anti-aliased.

Expected Results:  Fonts should be anti-aliased.

Additional info:

Replaceing qt2 in 8.0 with the package in 7.3 will make fonts anti-aliased.  But
this will cause a lot of crashes.
