    Thanks for this find. I did it a little differently as adding a 
command line argument means that we have to change a lot of places. 
Under options we have had a Yes/No choice for "Font Smoothing." I added 
it to that code. The reason we did not make it a default or permanent 
choice is that it can really slow the system down and on some systems, 
antialiasing is said to look bad. For full effect, it has to be set to 
yes when the application starts.
    It should be available in tomorrow's nightly build. Let me know how 
it looks.
