    I just set up a RAID 0 with two Velociraptors in my G5. I cloned my main drive onto the new RAID drive but it would not boot so I reinstalled OS X from the recovery DVD and it fixed the problem.

    However, now I am getting these really weird character issues in certain programs. Characters in my Mail e-mails are kerned WAY too close and the text is abnormally small (see photos below). I also noticed the same problem on one of my Yahoo widgets. Haven't found the problem in any other applications yet.

    Does anyone know what the source of the problem is and how I can fix it? It's obviously pretty important that I am able to read my e-mails.

    Thanks :)

    Thanks, I managed to fix the problem by disabling all fonts and hand selecting the defaults.
