I have the same -EXACT- problem and have been searching for months (possibly 
years) for anyone with any answers. I am currently using debian with KDE 
3.2.3 with the same 8 min and 10 med fonts. I have experienced this problem 
before many months (or years) ago when I used SuSE on KDE 3.1 and again on 
Libranet. The odd thing is I have multiple machines that are all sync'd as 
far as distro and software apps go. The only workstation that experiences 
this problem is my laptop; both now and long ago. My work around is to print 
web pages in Mozilla. Mozilla will print fine to a postscript file. Konqueror 
will not print correctly to either the printer, postscript or pdf. I thought 
it was some sort of font.config or printer filter problem because some web 
pages will print fine but others won't. I never clued in on that it is only 
the bold fonts that print like crap. Anyway I could never figure it out and 
would be indebted to anyone with any insight.
