Font rendering regression for freetype 2.2.1



The transition from FreeType 2.1.10 to 2.2.1 has led to a sensible
regression of the font rendering quality in various cases, in particular for
web pages using M$ core fonts. Luxi fonts (Fedora default font family up to
FC5) are affected, too. The latter is horizontally more condensed now, and
when the hinting is set from "medium" to "slight", it's ok in the horizontal
direction, but it gets vertically squeezed.
Verdana characters look blurred compared to setups where FreeType 2.1.10 is
installed. However, nobody seems to have complained about this, and the
associated bug report

   https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=198082

has not received any feedback. Nobody else hit by or sensitive to this
regression?
