I just saw this thread. I used to have this problem before and although I never
could figure out the /exact/ reason, it appeared to be something funky going on
with pango layouts.
My question as far as reproduction of the problem is concerned is: Are you
seeing this when you switch different desktop environments ? For me, i saw the
funky fonts when firefox was the first pango dependent application to start
(when I used WindowMaker as my primary desktop). For example, if instead I
launched pidgin/thunderbird/..etc before firefox, the fonts would be just fine.
