--- Comment #5 from Hin-Tak Leung <htl10 at users.sourceforge.net> ---
I have already tried a few things:

- setting FC_DEBUG (cannot make sense of the outcoming info - some help
instruction would be appreciated),

- strace -f ("R CMD SWeave" do fork - in any case, only the sans ascii fonts
and [Droid or WQY] are opened).

but none produces acceptable result.

please feel free to assign it as cairo or freetype problem as appropriate.
Since removing .fonts.conf (and switching between Droid and WQY) produces bad
results from a clean account with headless xvfb-run, I assume this is a
system-wide problem not due to customization; I suspect the problem is probably
somewhere between cairo and freetype.

Sorry I don't have a simplier non-R way of showing the same problem -
pango-view seems to do okay/correct.

Also the CairoFont-?-? font names were never seen under F17.
