I finally managed to set the Xserver to 100x100 dpi and can now
positively say: No, this is not related. The same weird font
behaviour with 100dpi.
I go one step further and say that I'm sure that it is not a
configuration problem, neither X nor Wine config.
Thank you so much for taking the pain to help me with X config
which way I learned so much more about X, KDE and SuSE, xdm,
xinit, xstart, .xserverrc, .xinitrc, spaghetti-links...
Pity that there is no "man kdm".
