Description

For some reasons nicknames which are alpha blended (as they are too long) are not rendered with subpixel rendering (assuming that it is enabled in fontconfig). This causes the text to look somewhat different to that of non-truncated nicknames. See the screenshot (Qt 4.5.0, Gentoo, medium hinting, legacy filter) for details.

Notice how <EvilGuru>, which is not truncated, is subpixel rendered, while <MindstormsKid> isn't subpixel rendered.
