Maybe a clue to poorly rendered f15 fonts?
 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=708525

I happened to set a font to a large size in an app, and
suddenly it appeared to be rendered completely differently.

I did an experiment, which is documented in the above
bugzilla, and I'm guessing that something is turning
off hinting too enthusiastically.

I faced the same problem and posted about it to the list[1]. I'll add
myself to the CC-list on that bug report. Hope there is a resolution
soon, apart from this hiccup F15 looks very nice so far.
