I just realized that I had bitstream-vera and dejavu fonts installed. I
removed them both and did some tests with older versions of ttf-dejavu.
Nothing changed but since no other page than the mentioned board is
affected this issue simply can't be that important.
At least I removed one redundand font (ttf-bitstream-vera). :)
Thanks for your help anyway!
