Fonts on Wine CVS post-0.9.1 are very ugly:


But if I replace a custom-built Wine CVS installation with the Wine 0.9.1
Debian sid package from Sourceforge, it looks much better:


I have the latest FreeType library from Debian unstable installed: 2.1.10.
The same version libfreetype6-dev package was used to build Wine CVS.

I poked around Wine CVS to see if I could figure out what changed to cause
the problem, but admittedly I really don't know where to look. I looked at the 
changes for dlls/gdi/freetype.c and dlls/gdi/font.c but didn't see anything.

Interestingly, trying to get Shareaza to work with the builtin comctl32.dll
I used this patch:


from WineHQ Bug #2659, and the same effect occurred. I had to hand-merge the
patch, so maybe I didn't do that right. Nonetheless the Wine CVS I'm using
is pristine unpatched from about 18 hours ago.

P.S. Another fellow appears to have similar problem:
