You have to tell XFree86 which fonts to substitute for the (non-truetype)
Helvetica etc. fonts. This is done in XftConfig. You can e.g. set 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
match any family == "fixed"		edit family =+ "mono";

#Use Lucidux fonts for default faces
match any family == "serif"		edit family += "LuciduxSerif";
match any family == "sans"		edit family += "LuciduxSans";
match any family == "mono"		edit family += "LuciduxMono";

#Alias between XLFD families and font file family name, prefer local
#fonts

match any family == "charter"		edit family += "bitstream charter";
match any family == "bitstream charter" edit family =+ "charter";

match any family == "Lucidux Serif"	edit family += "LuciduxSerif";
match any family == "LuciduxSerif"	edit family =+ "Lucidux Serif";

match any family == "Lucidux Sans"	edit family += "LuciduxSans";
match any family == "LuciduxSans"	edit family =+ "Lucidux Sans";

match any family == "Lucidux Mono"	edit family += "LuciduxMono";
match any family == "LuciduxMono"	edit family =+ "Lucidux Mono";
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

something like this in your /etc/X11/XftConfig.

I have set my default font to Verdana (even without antialiasing ;) so I
don't have that problem any more. ;)
