Keith Conger suggested the following xorg.conf device options which
solved the screwy font rendering for me:

Option     "XaaNoScanlineImageWriteRect"
Option     "XaaNoScanlineCPUToScreenColorExpandFill" .

I'm using the ati driver with the following device section:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card0_r300"
        Driver      "ati"
        BusID       "PCI:0:16:0"
        Option     "UseFBDev"           "true"  # [<bool>]
        Option     "DMAForXV"           "off"   # [<bool>]
        Option     "XaaNoScanlineImageWriteRect"
        Option     "XaaNoScanlineCPUToScreenColorExpandFill"
