Well, I don't know actually. Is sounds similar, but on my second installation, WINE worked with FreeType 2.7 without any problems and broke after installation of 2.8.

The suggested workaround:

export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35"

...does not works at all. As I said, it seems that nothing changes the rendering to better or even to worse. :)
