Bug#389480: konsole: No bold with white on black

Package: konsole
Version: 4:3.5.4-2+b1
Severity: normal

Unlike, for instance, xterm, konsole never uses the bold font to display
bold text.  The result is that, when using a scheme such as white on
black, bold text appears no different than standard text.

One easy way to see this is with the man command.  In xterm, with white
on black, a command such as "man man" will have clearly bold areas.  In
konsole, there aren't any.  xterm isn't changing the color there; it's
using a wider font.
