Thanks for the reply Phillip.
You're partially right, in that konsole was attempting to use incorrect fonts,
but the problem was not user-induced :)
The symptom is that the 's c r e w e d u p t e x t' occurs no matter _what_
font the end user selects. Alan Chandler has done some great work in tracking
