Scanning through the latest digest of kde-core-devel, I noticed a developer
just posted a patch to correct a custom font problem in Konsole that might
match your description. I'm not sure if there'll be another offical release on
the 2.2.x tree (anyone know?), so to correct the problem you might be on your
own. If you're into compiling from scratch, you could probably get the patch
from recent postings in the list's archives and compile it in. I think its been
committed to the 2.2 branch in CVS, so just make sure you have the kde-dev
package and its probably good to go. Here's the message pasted from
kde-core-devel-digest, I'd post the patch too but the digest format has so
horribly mangled it you'll probably be better off going straight to the

Hope this helps,

I'm really not sure if this is only for me or if anyone else is seeing
the problem but here we go.

When a "custom" font is selected in konsole and "save settings" used
on restart of konsole it defaults to using the "unicode" setting, this
is due to TOPFONT being one to low (or at least it fixed it for me,
not entirely sure of the logic so, maybe there is a better fix)

Its in the KDE_2_2_BRANCH so I thought it best to post the patch - 
in i've also made a few quick code cleanups.
