Unfortunately, the upstream "fix" fixes only the GNOME path and not the
fontconfig one. It was just beyond my imagination, that it can matter,
which way you specify the hinting settings.

A valid reason to mess around with hinting settings at the fontconfig level is a wish to have a consistent font rendering not only in GNOME but also for the GDM in case of users who find antialiased fonts disgusting. For now, they still have to choose between their favorite appearance and decent printing.
Anyway, the core issue is not fixed yet.
