upgrade from test3: no graphical boot and weird fonts

I have upgraded a vanilla FC test3 to 1.0 via the boot CDs and observe 
the following:

* graphical boot no longer works (worked with test3)
* some of the X11 Xft fonts (like Sans) are weird; they look "squashed" 
vertically (i.e., are smaller than on test3, with the same fontsize 
while vertical spacing seems to be the same as before).  I removed 
.fonts-cache* in my homedir, to no avail.

This certainly isn't a show stopper (I found the graphical boot to be 
somewhat silly anyways and the fonts, well, I can live with) but still I 
preferred how things worked on test3.  Anybody else been seeing this?
