No, I am sorry, but libzvt IS FUCKING BROKEN!

It is not a matter of anti-aliasing, it is not a matter of a design
choice, it is a matter OF A BUG.

Get it through your skull, it is broken, the older version works.

It is not 'rejecting' font decisions, it is IGNORING them.

It will not accept ANY font choice, anti-aliasing font or no.

No, wrong, in this case it is refusing to honor any fonts, it is
presenting options that don't work, and even if you edit the config
files it still refuses to allow you to change fonts.

If you don't believe us, try it yourself, prove us wrong by giving us
an example of a SINGLE font aside from the default it will allow you to

Until then, stop arguing that there is no bug.

  Yes, Java is so bulletproofed that to a C programmer it feels like
being in a straightjacket, but it's a really comfy and warm
straightjacket, and the world would be a safer place if everyone was
straightjacketed most of the time.        -- Overheard in the SDM.
