Package: fonts-cantarell
Version: 0.0.16-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Cantarell Regular appears to be rendering incorrectly on Gnome 3 after
system has been running for 3 to 4 hours, all applications that utilize
the system default font are having characters disappear, turn into grey
blocks, or otherwise become malformed. Here is an example:

Changing the font to anything besides Cantarell Normal in Gnome Tweak
Tool appears to fix the issue across all applications affected.
Cantarell Bold & other variants appear unaffected.
