Can you give us a specific font that comes with the distribution that
we should test with?
This is pretty much expected; you have to use a fixed-width font to
get crrect display.
(There was a bug with the "Terminal Font" setting in the font-properties
dialog that would have made it easy to trigger this; that's fixed
maybe a stupid mistake, but can the user in some way be prevented to make this
Also, new to phoebe3, the default fonts for ro_RO.UTF-8 locale ( used to be
iso8859-2 ) are very large. gnome terminal uses all the screen width ( 1024x768
) and half of the height. gEdit has the same font.
The font settings from phoebe2 were great.
The font dialog presented by the terminal properties dialog doesn't currently
support the ability to filter out non fixed width fonts.
