 The version of FreeMono.ttf included in myth has a problem with the
 2-character "st" sequence, which is displayed as a "t" with a slight bit
 of leading space.  This makes it look like the "s" is missing.  There is
 obviously a mistake in the kerning, but a larger question is why a
 monospaced font should include kerning at all.

 I tried using QFont::setKerning(false) and QFont::setFixedPitch(true), to
 no effect.

 I recommend downgrading to a version of FreeMono.ttf that predates
 kerning, specifically the 2008-03-23 version
