[TxMt] Help! Font rendering suddenly degraded. Have deleted ATS caches.

Here's an observation I made:

When I zoom in on the b+w screenshot with Ctrl+mwheel, I can see the  
artifacts of sub-pixel anti-aliasing (i.e. weird colored pixels in  
otherwise white text). When I do the same for white text in the  
colored screen shot, those artifacts are no longer there - it's just  
standard anti-aliasing.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what this means but hopefully it give  
someone else a clue to the problem.

Good luck,
Ian Potter
