I have also encountered this problem, and in fact it manifests with
every GTK+ app I'm using (with the exception of SeaMonkey, which seems
unaffected). However, I've experimented a bit, and the problem seems
to appear only under KDE. And even then, if I open the Colours module
in Control Centre, uncheck Use Colours with non-KDE Applications (or
whatever it's called in en_*), and hit Apply, the problem disappears.
Of course it also disappears with the Xft.antialias trick reported by
So, to the submitter: Are you also using KDE? Does this go away if
you run a different desktop environment / window manager? Does it also
go away when you uncheck the above option and apply it? If we can
confirm this, maybe we can take this bug to the KDE people instead of
"A man is well or woe as he thinks himself so."
