[BUG] Font thickness varies on the PDF/SVG output

Hello, when I export the schematic I have fonts (Value) that appear in different thickness.

I try setting antialiasing ON/OFF, Fallbackgraphic, downloading the latest version, restarting the schematic editor, creating a new project, annotate the schematic… nothing fix this and it random. It happens randomly, on many text on the schematic.

NOTE : ON BOTH TEXT I HAVE SET TO (BOLD + ITALIC). On the schematic editor, they are the same size, on the pdf (or SVG) they vary.

I am on fedora 36, Intel GPU.

EDIT : It looks like the font is “doubling” it is not a different thickness, it is like I have 2 time 1,5K written…

EDIT 2 : Downloaded Kicad from the official copr kicad repository, seems fixed in v7 for now !
I will try tomorrow all day and tell you if I still have the problem.
Thank you kicad team for your wonderful program.
