I am running two pc's with sid. After I upgraded fontconfig on one, I had the 
same problem. So I replaced the /etc/fonts folder of that pc, with that one 
of the other, and the problem was gone. The only difference between both 
fonts.conf files is in Line 26. Replace 
<dir>/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs</dir> with 
<dir>/usr/lib/X11/fonts</dir> ,run fc-cache again and re-login. 
It seems, that fontconfig doesn't find all fonts.
