No  maintainer did not ignore it.  He responded reasonably.

Has Mr. Mr. Dmitry Baryshev read all the responses by Sandro Tosi.  I
think Sandro made it very clear (typo corrected):

Here is CC for Mr. Dmitry Baryshev.

This can happen due to broken font renderer or broken font itself. In KDE this font works fine, so, it's a broken font renderer in GTK or python-gtk or reportbug or something. No one even tried to diagnose this I mean.


Anyway, if I trust Mr. Dmitry Baryshev, he has pure squeeze.  What ever
application he used to create this situation may be the cause.  He needs
to file a bug report to the package which is causing problem.  (I do not
know how he created this ~/.gtkrc which he claims to be the cause.)
reportbug has nothing to do with this.

One may file a general bug report if he does not know which package is
causing problem.  But that is usually a least useful kind of bug report.

One should not report bug to the wrong package.  If it is not
immediately clear to DD which package is causing problem from a vague
bug report which seems to be caused by user miss configuration, DD will
close such useless bug report.  It serves nothing.

Please think about this.
