Subpixel font rendering in gutsy.

Sorry keybuk, I stole your thread title.
Please test it out and contribute to the UF thread linked below.

gusty upgrade with Xfce desktop:
[UPGRADE] fontconfig 2.4.2-1.2ubuntu1 -> 2.4.2-1.2ubuntu2
[UPGRADE] fontconfig-config 2.4.2-1.2ubuntu1 -> 2.4.2-1.2ubuntu2

None of my previous menu options have changed (quite normal *_*), I’m still happy with my previous config:

:~ $ cat ~/.config/xfce4/Xft.xrdb
Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.hinting: 1
Xft.hintstyle: hintfull
Xft.rgba: rgb
