In my situation it seems to be a different font that causes the ugly display
as seen in my screenshot. At least deleting 12x13ja.pcf.gz didn't solve it
(yes, i updated fonts.dir and fc-cache :)

Which brings me to another question, how do i see which font files are
chosen by fontconfig after the matching has taken place?

I would like to see if i can tweak fonts.local to actually get fontconfig to
serve the correct fixed font without deleting font files, but that's a bit
complicated without a way to find out which files are chosen based on the
matching system..
