Holy cow! With bitmap fonts being unsupported in the 1.44 and later
releases of pango, that'll surely cause what I'm seeing. Being as I just
bumped my pkg repository to use /latest instead of /quarterly last week
and seeing this, a bigger question now is, how many people this is going
to effect now that this update has hit /quarterly? That's a huge bummer
but thank you very much for the info!
