I've got a problem with gnome-terminal where the fonts are "squashing"
together, particularly "m" and the "@" sign.  I figured it was just my
videocard or something. I did the Google thing and only came up with a
post from 2002 with the same squashed font complaint.  The fix was
"we're working on it, next release it'll be fixed."

I figure they've had enough time to work on it, no? ;)

All the other fonts that came pre-installed had the same problem...some
a little better, most worse :(

I downloaded the microsoft fonts from
http://avi.alkalay.net/software/msfonts/download/
and those seem to work better. I'm using andale mono now and the
squishing is gone.  

Mind you, I don't use emacs and xterm looked fine to me, but maybe the
problem is related in some way.
