That's may be so... Or not, and I'm afraid of the latter. It looks more like X font server cannot scale fonts properly under some circumstances (which are mostly mysterious for me). Sometimes, however, the fonts are OK.
I have discovered that the problems encounter mostly with TrueType fonts.
The other thing: after recompiling XFree86, I've found Konsole not working with its bitmapped fonts (Small, medium, big, Linux etc). WTH can this be?..
