As far as I can see from the mailing list, you never did get an answer
to this question. Sorry for that.
The fonts relevant for the X backend are the helvetica and the courier
font. Are you using anti-aliasing (the default when freetype2 is installed)?
It is possible that the conversion from Unicode to 16 bit done in
GSXftFontInfo drawGlyphs:... fails for you. The code in drawString:...
look seven worse, but this should not be used any more.

You should raise a bug report at the GNUstep savannah page on this
problem. GNUstep is working rather well with western european languages,
but support for other encodings is still poorly tested. If you have a
patch for the problem feel free to send it along.
