I had at least similar problems with the fonts in KDE 3.1.3. But in the
new KDE 3.1.4 antialiasing seems to work perfectly. Unfortunately
3.1.4 introduced new problems on Solaris systems
	1) the desktop won't shut down
	2) notatun doesn' t work any more

Currently I have installed both releses (3.1.3 and 3.1.4) in parallel. I start
the 3.1.3 desktop but use the applications Konsole, Kmail and Konqueror
from the 3.1.4 release. A little bit intricate, but this way I have both the
nice fonts in Kmail, Konqueror an Konsole and can play movies and
music with noatun.
