FWIW, I did bugzilla it and it has been fixed but just didn't make it into
the release.  Also, I looked back at my report and it really was only
necessary to:

1. Login as KDE user.
2. Go to the KDE "Control Center" --> "Fonts" menu
3. Deselect Anti-Aliasing then hit "apply"
4. Select Anti-Aliasing then hit "apply"
5. Logout/Login

The above does really improve the way fonts display!
