Hi, any news about  AA + fixed width fonts problem?  Broken on
testing and unstable here since ~ 2 weeks.

In case it works for someone could you post the xftconfig file and
dpkg -l '*ttf* output.

I'll try to look deeper into it but I hope someone can save me
some/much time ;)

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
