2.6.x font rendering busted with no display or Xvfb

Hi all,

With 2.4.x, AbiWord couldn't run without an X server (for example for
command line conversions). However, when you used Xvfb things were
perfectly fine.

With 2.6.x we don't have the X display dependency anymore. However, when
you do a command line print, the results are quite bad when not using
the standard X server.

Testcases for a sample document (http://uwog.net/~uwog/test.abw):

  1) Command line conversion with a normal X server works perfectly:


  2) Command line conversion with Xvfb: font rendering looks quite off


  3) Command line conversion with no DISPLAY: *really* crappy font


Does anyone have a clue what is going on here? Any workaround (like 2.4
+Xvfb was) would be appreciated as well.
