Since 2.37+18+g9b5d1b2f-2, the rendering has been broken on my system. Please compare the attached screenshots.

Replacing the file /usr/share/fonts/TTF/DejaVuSerif-Italic.ttf with the one from the previous version fixes the problem.

You can reproduce as follows: `pango-view --font italic test.txt`
Replace `italic` with the appropriate string if DejaVu is not the default font on your system. test.txt should contain the letter M.

Broken version: 2.37+18+g9b5d1b2f-2
Working version: 2.37-3
