I had a long-standing alignment problem with xt5250 in SUSE, which turned out to be related to UTF-8. Here's the thread in the archives:
Other Linux distributions (like RedHat) don't have the problem, I think because they aren't UTF-8 enabled.
It is a new computer, last time I did something similar was cuple years ago, in RedHat. I didn't have this problem in that instalation.

I have xt5250 running in my Linux (SUSE) spanish and all acentuated characters do not show, worst it dis-aligns the rest of the screen, and the input fields are where they are suposed to be, not where the underline shows then. Also disapears the caracter after the one that does not show.
Is this a new problem? Was everything working correctly on a previous release?
