Did you build libgtk* yourself? I had the same symptoms, it turned
out that I had an ancient libXft.{so,a} lying around in /usr/X11R6/lib.
Check with ldd that /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 links
to /usr/lib/libXft.so.2 only (i.e. no other libXft) and that it doesn't
contain the string XftConfig (in case it has linked in 
the bad libXft.a).

Cheers, Roderich
