Bug#566086: kdm: antialiasing does not work

Package: kdm
Version: 4:4.3.4-3
Severity: important

Font antialiasing does not work on kdm on my machine, even though I enabled
it in my kdmrc and restarted. The following snippet contains some of the
relevant lines of that file:

 egrep -in 'alias|font' /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc

 345:# Whether the fonts used in the greeter should be antialiased.
 348:# The font for the greeter headline.
 351:# The normal font used in the greeter.
 353:StdFont=Sans Serif,10,5,0,50,0
 354:# The font used for the "Login Failed" message.
 356:FailFont=Sans Serif,10,5,0,75,0

I have also tried executing 'systemsettings' as root and enabling anti-aliasing there, but this also had no effect on kdm.
