Uh, any Debian-packaged libfreetype6 later than 2.1.7 has significant
rendering bugs.  For some reason, when the broken 2.1.10 was uploaded to
unstable by the previous maintainer, the decision was made to force the
broken version into testing, rather than reverting to the one that worked.

Just another in the long list of reasons I haven't allowed my box to update
any part of X in a very long time.
