``Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion'' errors


So I ran apt-get update and apt-get upgrade today, and now when I
start xdvi (on a DVI file) or gv (on a PostScript file) I get the
following warnings:

   Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
   Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset

>From what I can tell from the results of a Google search, this
error seems to be associated with X support for Japanese (and
maybe other Asian languages).  Since I wasn't seeing this error
message before today, I'm assuming it's caused by one of the
packages that was upgraded; of those, the suspicious ones are 


with xfree86-common being the most suspicious.  But I can't see
anything obvious in the configuration files contained in these

Is anyone else seeing these warning messages?  If I'm wrong about
these packages, any idea where they're really coming from?  And
will they be fixed in time (e.g., if there are additional packages
that haven't been built yet, but will be within the next couple of
days) or should I file a bug report?



 Behind the counter a boy with a shaven head stared vacantly into space, 
 a dozen spikes of microsoft protruding from the socket behind his ear.
