When enable bytecode_interpreter and   subpixel_rendering, this problem
happens.

Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-03-12 23:45:42 UTC
So, the first shot happens with default rawhide freetype?

Comment 4 sangu 2007-03-13 00:35:15 UTC
Sorry!
First shot uses package with bytecode_interpreter and subpixel_rendring.

Comment 5 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-03-13 01:18:58 UTC
Ok then.  This is a known regression in freetype 2.3.2.  Upstream knows about it
and is working on a new release.  I'll push it in rawhide when it's out.
