one of my coworker tried one day to write perl stuff for gimp but got
mad since he wasted two hours before understanding the doc was wrong
since some stuff didn't got imported into namespace, which is what use
is intended to do.

yes. gimp-1.1.23 didn't fully compiles without this one, and since
that day, we've always applied this patch.

you see, distro maintainer job is to make programs that works for
everybody :-)

the bug really is that gimp try to apply image dpi to the font
setting, and fonts don't provides/support all dpi settings.
it'll work with "classic" dpi setting ... but not for everybody.
if you create an image with a strange resolution *then* you'll enter
the devil lands :-(

as far as i can see, this has nothing to do with anti-aliasing but the
fact that gimp blindy try to force font to enforce the image
resolution even for non scalable fonts which cannot do this by
hence the patch.

you're right: this is why i will never submit it to you as i said :-)

humm. once the bug is spotten and a fix is availlable, i see no point
to use such db but it's just my 2 cents.
