Re: Mintty 2.4.0 and Deja Vu Sans Mono 2.35: issue with bold

Sorry, missed that question first time.  I first noticed the problem
when using gnus via ssh, not a very helpful test.

Much easier:

  > export PS1='\[\033[1m\]\h\[\033[0m\]<\!>:'

and your machine name should be bold.

But I have a further (bizarre) observation: This problem is
size and/or resolution-related:

       Show bold as font
       On            Off

 8pt   Works         Doesn't work

12pt   Doesn't work  Doesn't work

The above is on a large screen (20" diagonal, resolution 1680 x 1050).

On a smaller screen (13" diagonal, resolution 1920 x 1080) I have to go
up to 16pt before bold and regular are indistinguishable...
