I am afraid that a damage I am observing shifts.  Sometimes it is rather
subtle, and I have to search for it, other times it will be blunt "up in your
face". For example, after the last round up updates to 20081020 set, which
brought a new kernel, mesa packages, xorg-x11-drv-ati, xorg-x11-server-common
and xorg-x11-server-Xorg, after a reboot I can see an extra pixel left of "l"
and something eaten in "@".  Also changing font scaling may change what is
wrong or even "fix" everything.  So, contrary to the original subject of this
report, troubles may started earlier than 20081007 and I simply missed it. I
cannot be even sure now how much earlier as on a casual glance everything may
look normal.

The only thing which remains constant is that if I will boot, on the same
machine, either Fedora 9 or Fedora 8 or CentOS 5.2 then I cannot find any
traces of misrendered fonts and I really tried.

Making "Rendering" into "Monochrome" in "Appearance Preferences" does "fix", in
a sense, all described troubles.
