severity 524310 normal


I can’t reproduce this with the same fontforge version on stable
and on unstable Debian releases. In addition, I believe that it is
Xorg problem. Therefore, I still decreased the severity of this
bug to normal.

This are the messages from the X server.

This is a message from the fontforge program, but it clearly says about
the X-server problem.

Unfortunately, I do not know what to advise you. Maybe you should try to
edit the file /etc/X11/Xorg.conf, or turn off the visual effect if you
use them.
