You are right there - the problem only appears on large font sizes. Is 
there anything I can do about it? The Mathematica font files seem to 
have names that are not too helpful - i.e. you don't see Courier, Times, 
Helvetica etc, but numbers. What is 'Mathematica5Mono-Bold.pfa' supposed 
to be for example - anyones guess really. One might hazard at a guess it 
is a bold version of a monospaced font, but nothing more than that.

I have at the minute included the Mathematica fonts, but they are on the 
*end* of the font path. I don't know if that is searched in order, but 
if so, perhaps there is an advantage in putting the Mathematica fonts in 
front of the Sun X ones, although the mathematica binary appended them 
on the end.

"xset q" shows my font path includes both

/usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/5.1/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1

and

/usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/5.1/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF

but they are at the *end* of the list of about 10 font directories.
