Check your /etc/X11/XftConfig settings.  Remove these:

	dir "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/defoma/TrueType"
	dir "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/defoma/CID"

Add these:

	dir "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType"
	dir "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/CID"

The font paths used by defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf have changed.

I guess one of us Debian developers should update the FAQ soon.  I guess
most of us are too busy to do so right now, but we will get to it before
the official woody is released.
