The problem actually seems to be that GNOME desktop settings for font 
smoothing and hinting, as configured via Preferences->Fonts->Details.., 
are not honoured. I don't think I've configured anything special there, 
but apparently, I don't even get normal defaults... I can change the 
appearance to something better by editing ~/.fonts.conf, though, but I'm 
still not sure if I've been able to reproduce the exact settings of 
other programs. And I don't think I've had to do this in the past...
