A font which shows up in example screenshots
is identified in gnome-terminal "Preferences"
as "Monospace 11".  Not entirely clear from
that description if it comes from dejavu or
something else. :-)   I tried other possibilities
like "Luxi Mono" (there are not too many of those)
and different sizes.  Although mis-rendering
changes it never totally goes away with an
exception of "MiscFixed" but these look like
not hinted and/or shaped fonts.

Wait a minute!  It appears that
"LucidaTypewriter Sans" and
"LucidaTypewriter Sans Bold" are also coming
fine (or at least problems are so subtle that
I missed those :-).

rpm -V dejavu-fonts
rpm -V liberation-fonts
do not lodge any complaints.  Just in case
I reinstalled both, with dejavu-fonts-experimental
added to that list too for a good change,
rebooted and, as you can see from an attached
picture, troubles are still there.  A bit
different with "Best shapes" instead of
"Best contrast" but not gone.  I have to
admit that a terminal window looks after
that definitely better.  Not sure why.
