Hello, Glen,

I've read your e-mail. I don't have your problem, but I was thinking it might be a locale issue or xserver / fontserver issue. A least I had troubles time ago when using not UTF btw exotic locales, but I am afraid it is not what is bugging you.

I'm not using NVidia card and no 3D (OpenGL).
