Bug#392976: kdebase: font mess-up after update

Package: kdebase
Version: 4:3.5.5a-1
Severity: normal

After running a regular dist-upgrade, some important fonts do not 
work. When using these fonts spaces are displayed instead of the 
right symbols in the majority of cases. I have not been able to 
find any error messages though. 

"xset q" shows:

	Font Path:

The problem affects at least the following programs:

	kdm_greet (says: kdm_greet[2921]: Can't open default user face)

I could not get kdm_greet to display anything useful by changing the 
fonts in the KDE control center at all.

For kwrite and konsole examples of the fonts not working are:

	Fixed [Misc]
	Fixed [Sony]
	Lucida Bright
	Lucida Typewriter
	New Century Schoolbook
	Terminal [Bitstreem]
	Terminal [DEC]

As the fonts seem to be still there, the problem might be related to font 
rendering. Sometimes the first characters are shown correcly but disappear 
after more characters are typed.

'xlsfonts | grep sony', for example, shows:
