--- Comment #23 from Akira TAGOH <tagoh at redhat.com> ---
The above result might explains this weird issue:

$ fc-match :pixelsize=10:scalable=false:lang=en
helvR10-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: "Helvetica" "Regular"
$ fc-match :pixelsize=12:scalable=false:lang=en
helvR12-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: "Helvetica" "Regular"
$ fc-match :pixelsize=14:scalable=false:lang=en
helvR10-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: "Helvetica" "Regular"
$ fc-match :pixelsize=16:scalable=false:lang=en
helvR12-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: "Helvetica" "Regular"
$ fc-match :pixelsize=18:scalable=false:lang=en
helvR18-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: "Helvetica" "Regular"

So if there are no requested sizes in fonts, it doesn't return the desired size
of bitmap fonts here. though if applications doesn't restrict non-scalable
fonts, it should fallback to the scalable fonts. that said if you say it is
blurred, you may need to customize your config with hinting etc perhaps.

I'll take a look for that though, maybe good to check /proc/<pid>/maps to see
what fonts are used for apps.
