I have verified that this problem is present on both of my test systems and it also appears in the live RC CD.

I just reproducted this bug on a day-old fresh install of 10.04 final. Locale is en_US.utf8, as above. Steps to reproduce:

1) System -> Help and Support
2) Advanced Topics link in left sidebar
3) Terminal Commands References (man pages)
4) Screen appears as in above screenshot.

The heading "GNU Info Pages" section under "Advanced Topics" is also unreadable. The method to reproduce is pretty much the same as above for the man pages:
1) System -> Help and Support
2) Advanced Topics link in left sidebar
3) GNU Info Pages
4) The heading appears same as in above screenshot for the "Terminal Commands References" page.

Here is the screenshot.
