<sarcasm> GTK3 isn't buggy, it is a bug. </sarcasm> I'm using JWM and
openbox, GTK2 fonts are ok, but after the big GTK3 upgrade I'm nearly
unable to read many fonts even with reading glasses. I guess "I have to
left-click and hold" is what upstream will call a feature, I wonder how
they explain unreadable scaled-down fonts for menu bars.
