[maemo-developers] Clutter and text rendering issues

I'm not entirely sure this is the right place, but I imagine it's an 
n900-specific issue...

Anyway, when using clutter 1.0 to render text (either the one in 
extras-devel, or one I compile myself), if you change the colour of the 
text at all, it renders each glyph as a white box [1]. I'm not sure why 
this is the case, but there's an unanswered post in the forums about it 
as well [2], so it's not just me.

Any ideas? I would ask the Clutter mailing list, but this clearly isn't 
an issue with Clutter in general, just it running under the OpenGL ES 
implementation on the device.

(I haven't tried with clutter 0.8, since it doesn't have all the 
features I need, but I suspect it works there, as otherwise other apps 
using it would be having issues)
