I must say that I don't have speed/stability problems on my Sid machine with
the Bitstream Cyberbit font (http://www.ccss.de/slovo/unifonts.htm) which is
also quite large (13MB). Nevertheless, fact is that the fixed font works the
best :)). I just wish I could make GNOME display the wide fonts correctly in
the GUI elements...
