Bug Description

I know the DejaVu font is very interesting for many languages (as I can see in Bug #12016), but Bitstream Vera shows better thatn DejaVu, as you can see in Bug #35470. Therefore, I propose to revert the changes and set Bitstream Vera the default font in Dapper instead of DejaVu.

Isn't this actually a Pango kerning bug? And how much does changing this actually help? Eg. I think I tracked back bug #33445 to being Vera, rather than DejaVu.

Sorry: I've tried it, but the problem is still here.

Bug #35470 is wrong. This bug affects any font that has its kerning applied by Pango. When you have a version of Pango that applies kerning to Bitstream you'll see the same tighted characters in gtk menus.
I really think this is a gtk menu specific bug, no matter what the font is as long as it has kerning.

Bitstream font is broken as for now (ó latin character is displayed with invalid glyph)
