Description Trever Adams 2003-07-14 18:45:50 EDT

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.

XFree86-base-fonts-4.3.0-17
XFree86-100dpi-fonts-4.3.0-17
fontilus-0.3-4
ttfonts-ja-1.2-21
XFree86-font-utils-4.3.0-17
tetex-fonts-1.0.7-66
fontconfig-devel-2.1-9
fontconfig-2.1-9
bitstream-vera-fonts-1.10-2
chkfontpath-1.9.10-2
bitmap-fonts-0.3-2
ghostscript-fonts-5.50-9
XFree86-truetype-fonts-4.3.0-17
urw-fonts-2.1-2
XFree86-75dpi-fonts-4.3.0-17


(unless the rpm for bitstream vera changed my settings, it should be irrelevant
to the problem)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
urw-fonts-2.1-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
See the above.

This shows the problem.  Look at lower cases u among others.  It should show a
baseline problem (baseline being where the bottom of anything but decending
lines should rest).

urw-fonts looks ok for me, it seems it's a bug in freetype. i cannot reproduce
it on my local machine with:
  XFree86-4.3.0-18
  fontconfig-2.2.1-4
  freetype-2.1.4-4.0
  urw-fonts-2.1-1

could you please upgrade the new rpms from rawhide, and try again.
please reopen it if this problem still appears. thanks
