Thanks.

Joachim, you experienced vaguely similar symptoms if I remember
correctly[2]. Did these occur always or only after hibernation? Do
you still experience them? If not, do you remember if some upgrade
(like pixman or xserver-xorg-video-intel) fixed it?

Sorry for the slow response,
Jonathan

I tried to reproduce it by filling my memory beyond the swap space, but
the fonts are still fine. There is some corruption in the background
image of X, though, which could have the same cause.

Greetings,
Joachim

I just had a real, unintentional OOM-situation again and now all my
fonts are garbled again (I hope I don’t make typos, I am typing this
semi-blind :-)), so the problem is definitely _not_ yet fixed in
unstable.

Greetings,
Joachim

Thanks. Nice to know.

Was the corruption in the background image of X mentioned in
<http://bugs.debian.org/641665#47> reproducible, and does it only
happen in OOM-situations? If so, maybe that would be a good angle of
attack --- can you check if it happens with xserver-xorg-video-intel
from experimental (SNA)?
