Clicking at the first hopeful-looking Google result for "Liberation
Mono", I'd downloaded it from a site called dafont.com. Apparently I
picked up an old version without that problem: 1.04.
I installed and use 1.06.0.20100721-3 from Fedora 14 without problems.
Ah, but I installed liberation-fonts-ttf-1.06.0.20100721.tar.gz from
https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/, and *DID* see the problem.
That is, after installation, Liberation Mono did not show up in mintty's
font selection window.
Here is a data point for 1.05 (albeit for an out-of-date setup):
mintty-0.9.6-1.tar.bz2 on XP SP3
A text metrics dumper reported Liberation Mono's lfPitchAndFamily
as 0x32, same as what Ryan reported for version 1.06.
I'm running Vista natively (no VM), but I haven't rebooted since
installing the font (if that makes a difference). Double clicking the
font itself shows that it is version 1.06.
