Bug#672554: konsole: vertically misaligned/cut off characters when using Terminus font

Package: konsole
Version: 4:4.7.4-2
Severity: normal

Since a recent series of updates in testing (that just happened to include Qt
4.8.1), Konsole doesn't draw characters with descenders (g, q, y, p, for
example) correctly when using the Terminus bitmap font at various sizes (bold
or otherwise). The characters are rendered vertically misaligned, cutting them
off at the baseline (a 'q' will look very much like an 'o') and leaving a
noticeable gap above for each line. This problem occurs at the standard sizes
provided by the font, but somehow not at sizes 9.8 - 10.1. Switching between
the bold and regular variants does not improve the rendering.

Truetype fonts in general seem unaffected, except for a couple of fonts
(Consolas and Lucida Console) found in Windows systems; this might not be very
relevant since they have never rendered quite right for me with different
hinting/antialiasing settings.

I couldn't reproduce this problem on other KDE applications such as Kate, which
is why I decided to file this bug against Konsole's package.
