I would start with looking for error messages and warnings in the X log:
$ egrep '^\((EE|WW)\)' /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Furthermore, check .xsession-errors for font/rendering/X-related

Start gimp or another problematic application from the command line and
hope for output which helps to identify the source of the problem.
