So btw does the linux true type renderer. If you tell stuff to use true
type fonts and not to allow scaling on the type 1 fonts its nice

My machine has been a lot happier since I did that. I've also written a
custom window manager for the PC110 Im testing out. It puts all the windows
as a single large fixed size (except the transients/desktop stuff), and saves
a lot of mouse abuse.
