Too bad.

Yeah, so those surely aren’t involved.

Some more dunno-how-useful facts: affected are only "inset" widgets like
GTKTreeview and text entry boxes. Japanese characters in titlebars and on select
widgets are displayed normally. You can see this here in my music player:


Strange fact: the program EasyTag does not seem to be affected. The characters
are not anti-aliased, but clearly visible. But Thunar and EasyTag both use
Cairo, Pango and Freetype …
