Please, in the future just attach individual documents, no need to package them into a zip (or other) archive. That just makes it a little bit harder for a developer to investigate the bug.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Misaligned square root sign is not a curve - it's a _text_.
So the problem in importing of squeezed symbols.
