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

Package: konsole
Version: 4:4.7.4-2
Followup-For: Bug #672554

After a quick examination of the konsole git repository upstream searching for
the relevant code and any mentions of Qt 4.8, it turns out this issue is
already known [1] and it only happens when bidirectional text rendering is
disabled in the Advanced tab for the configuration profile.

I could generate a patch from [2] (after dealing with whitespace changes in the
affected lines) against the version in wheezy/sid that fixes this issue, but in
turn increases line spacing significantly when bidirectional rendering is
disabled. Since there doesn't seem to be a better fix yet, enabling that option
seems to be a better solution for me, from an aesthetic standpoint.
