Is xfonts-base installed?

Run "aptitude search '~ixfonts-base'"

Note, I'm a Sarge user, so I don't have any experience with XOrg, only

yep its installed

Try "dpkg-reconfigure xfonts-base"

If that doesn't work, run 'mkfontdir /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc. In fact, you should probably run mkfontdir for all of the font directories that give you those (WW) warnings in the Xorg.log file.

Some programs use fontconfig. You can rebuild the fontconfig cache files by issuing "fc-cache -s -v -f" as root.
