I thought etch was not affected by this issue since I uploaded
specifically a fix targeted for it (2.3.2-7), but I just checked in a
clean etch chroot, and it looks it was broken in the meantime before the
release. So maybe this should be in the release notes, indeed.

That would be the xfonts-* packages. You only need xfonts-base so that
the X server can find “fixed”.
