      Description

      There have been several (somehow recent) reports in the mailing list [1] [2] [3] regarding a MacOS-specific issue with text rendering, namely what seems to be a regression in version 10.5. Reports also aim towards a workaround consisting in disabling Quartz, so I'm documenting this in order to try gathering more information on this issue and/or to server as a placeholder for patches.

      This may also help fixing/working around the issue reported in issue 41451.

      Note that I've set the OS as Mac OS X 10.4, although this seems to be specific to version 10.5 (which is not available in the list). Confirmations on which specific MacOSX version do the symptoms reproduce are welcome!
