I have this now, and it seems to work as good as on your system.

I haven't found one of these yet.

I see this with gedit (which I don't use) and Eterm (which I *do*
use). I also remember that I had this problem with Eterm before. I
went away when I installed some additional fonts.

Yes, that seems to work. Try to install xfonts-*-transcoded and see if
the problem persists.

I don't use Gnome, only some applications, so this is no problem.

Haven't noticed anything yet.
