Description of problem:
Since I upgraded from RH9 to Rawhide, font rendering is screwy. I believe this
is a urw problem, but it may be a rendering problem (freetype, XFree86, etc).
Anyway, I have attached a partial show of slashdot showing the problem. You
will notice there is no baseline, especially when it comes to the letter u.
Below are is rpm -qa | grep font for reference, in the case it is something else.
(unless the rpm for bitstream vera changed my settings, it should be irrelevant
to the problem)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
See the above.

urw-fonts looks ok for me, it seems it's a bug in freetype. i cannot reproduce
it on my local machine with:
could you please upgrade the new rpms from rawhide, and try again.
please reopen it if this problem still appears. thanks
Fonts that seem to be affected:
Nimbus, Serif (not sure where this font resides).
