Yes, it is the commint overwriting of our fonts. I was planning to
contribute a patch for at least an year now, but never got down to
it. It is somewhat annoying but not the most pressing issue; especially
now, when it looks like font-lock is the main cause of the (very) slow
emacs display of sub-process output.
