Ok, that makes the interface fonts look much better, but it breaks the bullets 
like you say, they wont even work when i add the opensymbol font to my main 
system fonts.

The OO freetype library should really be compiled according to the rules on 
patents used by the main debain distribution. I cant think of a reason for 
this not being the case. The only place that even has patents on software is 
the US, so even if it went in non_us that would be good.
