This is very disturbing. Could you please post the output of `Charmap
--GNU-Debug=dflt' on the console with both backends?
You can switch them with the same command, e.g.
defaults write NSGlobalDomain GSBackend lingnustep-art
will set the default art backend.

Thanks, I didn't know this. My machine is Pentium 233 MHz, so I assumed
that every amd64 machine is a lot more powerful, no matter what.
In theory it could be an arch-specific bug (there was an ia64 bug in the
past that resembles your problem), but I can reproduce the behaviour you
initially described on i386 with the art backend.
