It seems there was a pretty serious bug in 1.7.1 that caused rendering of
fonts to be completely messed up in specific circumstances. To deal with
this, I've released 184.108.40.206 which includes a fix (along with a couple
other minor fixes. Not sure why this slipped past my testing, but I'll
try to be more diligent in the future (maybe someone can write some Conky
unit tests? :) ).
