Default wheezy: Font rendering problems in GNOME 3.2.1?

hello,

for a few months now I have some artifacts that mysteriously appear and
disappear on my gnome desktop:

http://www2.inf.fh-brs.de/~fnatte2s/font_rendering.png

Maybe this is related: When I do a "apt-get upgrade", *many* packages
are held back:

It seems I am using the outdated GNOME 3.2.1.

Please tell me what I can try to fix this.

Thank you!

See http://bugs.debian.org/666468 and its two dozen duplicates.

Try "apt-get dist-upgrade" instead.

Cheers,

Sorry, but can't load the above URI:

sm01@stt008:~$ LANG=C wget www2.inf.fh-brs.de/~fnatte2s/font_rendering.png
--2012-08-03 16:44:53-- http://www2.inf.fh-brs.de/~fnatte2s/font_rendering.png
Resolving www2.inf.fh-brs.de... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address `www2.inf.fh-brs.de'

Anyway, your GNOME version should be "3.4", ensure you have a fully up-to-
date wheezy.

Why are those retained? :-?

Yes, so it seems.

Try with "apt-get update && apt-get -V dist-upgrade" and send here the
output (do not run the update yet, say NO).
