GTK font stuff is known to be broken, that's one of many reasons why
the GTK port is called experimental. One of the others is that the
primary developer, Bill Perry, is AFAIK currently busy with other
work, and the rest of the core team does not have time to develop
expertise. There may already be a fix for this particular bug, but
don't bet your day job on it. :-(
That said, an interest group formed by Les Schaffer
<schaffer(a)optonline.net> is currently maintaining a page of bug
reports, workarounds, etc, at
The core will be monitoring that page, I expect one or more new
developers to step forward and join Bill as the GTK core (don't know
who they are yet, I just have a feeling they're out there :-), and I
hope development will pick up in the new year.
Weak, I know, but it's the realistic estimate at the moment.
