[Fontconfig] problems with sub-pixel rendering

I have trouble getting sub-pixel rendering to work on my Dell Notebook.
Letters have colorful edges with most fonts but not with all.
I tried adding this entry to /etc/fonts/fonts.config
<edit name="rgba" mode="assign">
but xdpyinfo -ext RENDER | grep sub-pixel still produces
Screen 0 (sub-pixel order Horizontal RGB)
and the fonts look just as ugly as before.
The fonts that display this behavior are e.g. Swiss 721, Duncan,
Caligula, Brushstroke, Agate,... I am using XFree 4.3.0 and Xft 2.0.1
and fontconfig 2.1.94.
Thanks for any ideas,
