What platform/system version?  Does your stack have a custom windowshape?

There appears to be a bug with text antialiasing in Rev 2.7, on Mac OS X
10.3.9 -- specifically the text antialiasing gets removed.  The bug does not
appear to be present on more recent systems.  The Rev developers are aware
of this.
