I've had this font problem since slink (iirc) and it persists
as of Xsun version 3.3.6-9.
I don't know of a cure.
However I usually don't get a fatal server error just
Cannot open /dev/gpmdata, error 2. Trying /dev/sunmouse.
I thought the default was sunmouse ?!?
I don't even have gpm installed..
Not much of a help....
