Comment 100 for bug 145604

Since upstream can't make up their minds on this I've un-assigned myself - it doesn't look like this is going to be addressed any time soon. I had been hopeful of some kind of resolution that we could implement as an SRU. I've added a bug-track link to the upstream bug report.

When using VRGB sub-pixel hinting this issue will occur. The easiest workaround (one I've used with Gutsy, Hardy, and Intrepid) is:

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/rgba_order -t string "vbgr"
