Use the version 5 font file.

Version 3 is described in https://ics-web.sns.ornl.gov/edm/eum.html#id2503129 .

Version 4 adds substitutions for all instances of a font spec. See https://ics-web.sns.ornl.gov/edm/log/show.php?mon=Apr&theDay=16&year=2012 .

Version 5 adds substitutions for single instances of a font spec. See https://ics-web.sns.ornl.gov/edm/log/show.php?mon=Jul&theDay=22&year=2013 .

Before Redhat released the liberation fonts, the scalable Helvetica font that shipped with their distribution rendered 16 point fonts smaller than it should have been. Liberation san-serif 16 point would not fit in objects that were sized based on the contents of text.  Version 5 allows a font rendering adjustment that can be used as a temporary fix (until some poor developer takes the time to change 10000 screens).

Thank you John,
That did the trick.

Now I need to revisit the fonts issue.  There's an old message of adding Fonts.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but that doesn't appear to work with this newer os.
Perhaps the problem is that I've not been able to find the "unscaled" 
fonts.  Any ideas?
Thanks again,
Pierrick
