[rrd-developers] Bug#493575: since librrd2 1.2.28-1 rrdtool produces graphics without text

reopen 493575
forcemerge 493575 493594


Reopening #493575 since Teodor confirmed it. Please note though, that
this tag is meant to be used by the maintainers only (see
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#tags). Anyway, I could reproduce
the bug with the --font options as provided in #493594, so the tag is
fine, and I could confirm that this issue is gone in 1.3. Also, I've
merged the bug with #493594 because I believe they are the same - Marc,
please tell me if you had different things in mind when opening another

The graphing part of rrdtool has been rewritten in 1.3, so the problem
seems to have been fixed by that.

I assume this has been introduced in upstream SVN revision 1403 ("fix
for --font bug (font names wer not being picked up at all)") but I did
not have the time yet to have a closer look at it. Maybe someone else on
rrd-developers could try to find the source of the problem.
