  this puts me back exactly to the state where the
font letters are missing.  like right now i am
typing this in Gnome Terminal and gnome-
panel 3.2.1-2+b1 using slrn.

  the gnome-panel up above is missing the word
"Activities" completely, to the right a little it
has the icon for the terminal "T  m  al", the clock 
in the center shows "7" and the rightmost part says 

  to get it to display correctly i have to again 
click the accessibility icon (that is not displayed 
until i hover over it) and clicking "L rg  T xt" and 
then again clicking "Large Text" (to turn it back 
to normal font).  then all is well again.

  if i knew how to automatically include these
steps in the desktop startup i could try that, 
but i'm not a gnome wizard.

  thanks for your reply,
