Gentoo Linux AMD64
X.Org 7.4 (xorg-server 1.13.0)
Linux kernel 3.7.1
Some PCF fonts are rendered with pixel garbage around them by Qt 5. Qt 4 does not show this problem.
Here's a simple test program that should demonstrate the bug:
The "font-sony-misc" font is provided by X.Org and should be available by default in most Linux distros. Some other PCF fonts also trigger the problem, like "Clean" and "Console".
I'm attaching a screenshot that shows the problem.
