Keep in mind that this may not be trivial to reproduce. I am not running
xfs, and I have the default entries from dexter in my XF86Config-4:
FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server
# if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these
...and my configuration works fine. So in some circumstances, it DOES fall
back without a problem.
