At 14 px, these are the affected fonts:
Andale Mono MT Std
Courier 10 Pitch
Droid Sans Mono
Tlwg Typo
Ubuntu Mono

Not affected:
Andale Mono
Andale Mono IPA
Courier New
DejaVu Sans Mono
Liberation Mono

Disabling the "Smooth fonts" and "Draw intense colours in bold font"
options did not help. I made all changes in the Profile Configuration
menu of Konsole.
