Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: thunderbird
It appeared when I switched from xfce to gnome, but acts even when I work under xfce.
I came accross this ugly behavior of thunderbird and other programs like gvim under gnome
several times, under debian.
I just want to be able to use any font, whatever I like at the moment, which is installed on the system. I feel deeply insulted when the system pretends to know better which fonts are
to be used.
This is Ubuntu 7.10,
"apt-cache policy thunderbird" gives the following message:
500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com gutsy-updates/main Packages
500 http://security.ubuntu.com gutsy-security/main Packages
*** 220.127.116.11~pre071022+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.7.10 0

I expect that when composing message I chose koi8r encoding and type in
using koi8r keybord, I would see cyrillic letters, but instead I see something like this:
