	There are some small errors in the display of Greek fonts
in GNOME (latest version, HelixGNOME). The error was there for quite 
a long time.

It could be either problems with the fonts or with GNOME.
The problem is that sometimes GNOME (gtk?) cannot calculate correctly the
width of the string and it chops it prematurely (1 or 2 characters).

These fonts can be found at http://graphis.hellug.gr and 
they are included in all popular distributions of Linux as
*ISO-8859-7*.rpm packages.

Problem encountered with:
(changing the font size did not eliminate the error)

Works ok with these Greek fonts:

Could you give me some insight whether it's a problem with the fonts or
GNOME or both?
