[Bug 333826] Re: Font hinting in Qt doesn't match other settings

** Description changed:

  I have font hinting disabled in fontconfig AND in my gnome settings, yet
  Qt 4.5 still draws BCI-hinted fonts.
+ Update: having hinting = false seems to have no effect on Qt, either
+ with QtGtkStyle or Plastique.
+ Workaround: hintstyle=hintnone (as opposed to hintslight, hintmedium,
+ hintfull) controls it perfectly in Qt.
+ So the bug is that Qt firstly does not honour GConf settings for
+ QtGtkStyle as it is supposed to, and then that in the fontconfig setup,
+ it ignores the "hinting" setting completely.
