Errrr.  How would they do that if the font didn't contain the necessary
information?  IAC, I used to have a bit map that was not AAed, and now I 
have an AAed font.

I don't think that I made any changes except for upgrades of KDE-3.4 
Branch.  Didn't upgrade X or change my X configuration file.

I did upgrade Qt.

Konsole used to use:


which comes in several sizes including the 9x15 which KDE ships.

I normally used "Large".

I find that I can still use the previous font by selecting it under 
"Custon": Fixed[Misc], Regular, 11.

But if I select "Large" I get something else -- looks like Courier.
