           Summary: National characters in konsole are broken
           Product: konsole
           Version: 2.3.3
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: depesz at depesz.com

Version:           2.3.3 (using KDE 4.3.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Archlinux Packages

I have strange situation - after some upgrade couple of days ago fonts in KDE
konsole broke. To make it more specific - standard fonts look more or less ok,
but when I use my national characters (like ąćęłńśóźż) they all look broken -
like from another font, or badly scaled.

The same problem doesn't exist in gnome-terminal.

I usually use Terminus font, so I used this for demonstration, but it shows in
other fonts as well - if that will be necessary I will provide list.

Konsole shot:


gnome-terminal shot:


As for my settings:

=$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Builtin Default intel Device 0"
    Driver  "intel"
Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor0"
    VendorName     "Monitor Vendor"
    ModelName      "Monitor Model"
Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Builtin Default intel Screen 0"
    Device  "Builtin Default intel Device 0"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "touchpad"
    Driver  "synaptics"
    Option "CorePointer"
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Builtin Default Layout"
    Screen  "Builtin Default intel Screen 0"
    InputDevice "touchpad"

=$ xdpyinfo | grep -E resolution\|dimensions
  dimensions:    1680x1050 pixels (444x277 millimeters)
  resolution:    96x96 dots per inch

I tried forcing DPI in system settings (to 120), or adding monitor size to
xorg.conf - so far nothing helped.

I asked about it on arch forum
(http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=669229#p669229), SuperUser
(http://superuser.com/questions/80533/broken-fonts-in-konsole-kde-4-3-4) and
kde forum (http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=84398) and I was told it
looks like a bug, so I'm filling it.
