[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#717510: fonts-dejavu-core: too-close kerning with rr, rm, and rn

Package: fonts-dejavu-core
Version: 2.33+svn2514-3
Severity: normal

When I use the sans-serif font (as is used throughout XFCE), the kerning
between rr, rm, and rn is too close.  In fact, the rn combination looks
like an m, which leads to misreading.  I have attached a screenshot of
this happening in Exaile with rm.  If this is a bug in another package,
please feel free to reassign this bug there.
