Comment 20 for bug 314555

Yes, it's still an issue. Lucida Console bold is fine in my terminal window, but it still renders badly in the font picker, text editor (mousepad), and possibly other programs as well. I'm running Xubuntu Lucid.

It's odd that the problem only occurs in certain applications. Could it be a disagreement between XSETTINGS and fontconfig about the hintstyle to use for certain fonts?
