Hi Rainer.

Thanks for your kind response.

Yes, I installed with a fresh cvs tree and portupgrade, so it is a stock

The problem appears to be something with fonts and gnome, but it appears
to be a bug though perhaps not in gnome. If I run straight X with twm,
graphics are fine. However, under gnome 2.10 I get this report on two
different systems (one with 5.4 stable, one with 6.0 current)

It is most odd as gnome 2.10 runs everything without a hitch... by
chance do you have access to a gnome setup to try things?
