please don't laugh at the bug - ugly fonts are really bad, especially widely
used ones :)

So, release-team, whats your opinion? 

If you say "probably, but we want to see the diff first", I say "great", if
you say "no way" I'll spare myself the work of creating it. Actually, after 
writing this, I looked at the upstream diff, the result is at the bottom of
this mail..

I'm fairly sure that the bug report and fix are valid, considering how picky 
and fanatic quite many people are about fonts :-)
