X fonts problem

recently, i have been experiencing trouble with fonts on my 3.3.6 X
server running on 2.4.5/woody. certain programs, like "plan", "dia",
display text as dotted rectangles, and not even one per letter. i took
the liberty to attach a file to this mail, a gif stripped down as much
as possible, please excuse the 2kb -- it makes explaining this a whole
lot easier.

what you see written in the cloud of the attached image is the word
"internet" -- eight letters condensed to four -- and not legible.

in opera, i get this effect every now and then on what seems to be
special characters.

any clue what might be causing this?
or more importantly, how to fix it?
