Yes, sounds like the same problem.

Thanks.  I just found 2.6.0-1 on snapshot.debian.net and downgraded to
it (fontconfig, fontconfig-config, libfontconfig1(-dev)), but that
didn't improve things, even after a gdm restart.  Perhaps something
changed in the configuration?

I'm surprised I didn't suspect fontconfig when I first saw the list...

I'm CCing debian-gtk-gnome in case anyone there has ideas.  (I'm
subscribed there, so no need to CC me in replies any more if you include
that list.)

Thanks again,
