Each 'p' should be a 'm'; it is a monospaced font.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:

The fonts.alias in the source tarball has monospaced aliases for URW-Courier,
but this file isn't included in the RPM.  IMO, creating aliases is not the way
to go; the fonts *aren't* proportional, and they shouldn't have XLFDs that say
they are.
