Hinting/Antialiasing broken after 9.04->9.10 update

Bug Description

Binary package hint: fontconfig

The update 9.04 -> 9.10 broke the hinting/rendering of the X desktop fonts on my box (see screenshot). As it influences ttf only (xterm w/ a bitmap font still looks as usual), I guess it's a fontconfig bug. The only option to get a usable desktop is to switch off hinting *completely*.

Note that the fonts in Firefox are still broken, but sometimes a "zoom out" - "Zoom normal" sequence makes everything readable again.
