Sounds like it could be a corrupted font problem. Try narrowing down
your fonts a little and tracking it that way. Eg.. Hershey fonts that
are included with some distros.. corrupted at the source.. remove them.

We are working on corrupted font handling, the problem is that sometimes
you don't know the font is corrupt until its too late.
