Monospace is not a real font - can you find out which font it actually refers
to using:

fc-match Monospace

The Andale Mono font that I have doesn't appear to have a 'bold' style in the
font selector in Qt/KDE applications but it does in Gnome applications.  I'm
not sure of the reason for that.  This problem, if it is a bug, is not specific
to Konsole though.

My memory is a bit hazy on this but I think that in KDE 3 'bold text' in the
terminal might have been rendered by drawing the same text twice with a offset
to make the letters look thicker - this would work for any font but didn't look
very nice.
