Yet another TT fonts problem on Debian sid

I saw a few msgs about problems with TT fonts go by recently, but none of them 
seemed to solve my problem.

All my True Type fonts seemed to get hosed after an "apt-get upgrade" a few 
days ago (not sure what was changed - looks like maybe the fontconfig pckg).

After tweaking with the /etc/fonts/fonts.conf and local.conf files, I was able 
to restore most of them (particularly Helvetica and Fixed[Sony], which I rely 
on heavily).

But all of my True Type fonts are still screwed up.  (See 
http://home.nyc.rr.com/darsys/fontprobs/FontBad.png for an example of the 
broken Arial font; http://home.nyc.rr.com/darsys/fontprobs/FontGood.png for 
an example of the working Helvetica font.)

My fonts.conf file includes: <dir>/usr/share/fonts</dir> which looks correct 
to me, since my TT fonts are located in /usr/share/fonts/truetype.  But TT 
fonts like Arial are still displaying as jagged.  It was all working fine (I 
think) up until recently (although I haven't tried Arial or other TT's in a 
little while), but then got hosed with some update.

It seems like X and KDE both are aware of the Arial font, but somehow are not 
loading it.

BTW, my KDE is set to not display fonts as anti-aliased across the board (and 
I'd like to keep it that way).

Anyone have any ideas?
