I suggest to un-check use theme fonts in profiles and use the default monospace fonts.
Does this help?
A general solution to get a better font rendering for the MATE desktop is to set 'hinting' to slight.
gsettings set org.mate.font-rendering hinting slight
mate-desktop-1.6.1-11.fc19 comes with better general font rendering setting, this should fix your issue. Pls test and leave karma.
